Colorado Architecture Students And Their Amazing Rustic Cabin Design

Categories: Homes / Dwellings

Architecture students from the University of Colorado Denver have built a series of rustic dwellings for an outdoor education school in the Rocky Mountains.

The Colorado Outward Bound Micro Cabins – each measuring between 140 and 200 square feet (13 to 18 square metres) – were created to serve as "micro dormitories".  There are 14 dwellings in total, and they were constructed on-site in three weeks.

Some lucky young outdoor adventurers in Colorado get to camp out in a group of amazing wood and steel cabins designed by architecture students at the University of Colorado Denver. Created for a school run by Outward Bound, a nonprofit that uses outdoor experiences to teach leadership skills and boost self-esteem, 14 cabins provide more than just shelter. They are sustainable micro-dormitories devised to connect students with nature, in the heart of the Rocky Mountains.
