Class Act: In Alabama, Students Turn Tires and Bales of Hay into Striking Architecture for the Poor.
Stewart, Doug
Smithsonian, v32 n7 p106-10,112-13 Oct 2001
At the Rural Studio--an off-campus program of Auburn University--architectural students use scavenged and donated materials to create innovative houses and other buildings for poor, rural, primarily African American communities. Materials such as hay bales and old tires are recycled to create full-blown modern architecture, which also fulfills community needs. (SV)
