      Rural Studio at twenty : designing and building in Hale County, Alabama
      Andrew Freear and Elena Barthel, with Andrea Oppenheimer Dean
      "For two decades the students of Auburn University's Rural Studio have designed and built remarkable houses and community buildings for impoverished residents of Alabama's Hale County, one of the poorest in the nation. Our critically acclaimed bestseller Rural Studio (2002) showed how salvaged lumber, bricks, discarded tires, hay-and-waste cardboard bales, concrete rubble, colored bottles, carpet tiles, and old license plates were transformed into inexpensive buildings that were also models of sustainable architecture. Rural Studio at Twenty chronicles the evolution of the legendary program, founded by (MacArthur Genius Grant and AIA Gold Medal winner) Samuel Mockbee, and showcases an impressive portfolio of projects. Part monograph, part handbook, and part manifesto, Rural Studio at Twenty is a must-read for any architect, community advocate, professor, or student as a model for engaging place through design"-- Provided by publisher.

    • Graft in architecture : recreating spaces
      Graft in architecture : recreating spaces
      text and projects by Jin-Ho Park [in collaboration with] Design Research & Innovation Laboratory
      'Graft' in architecture refers to any designs added to existing or neglected structures, reinvigorating tired spaces with new life. Instead of dismissing these spaces as simply 'functional', graft in architecture values them for their potential and shows how we can turn negative spaces into opportunities to breathe new life into architecture. Along with the Design Research & Innovation Laboratory (D-Lab), Professor Jin-Ho Park highlights four projects and the process involved in grafting, from conception to fabrication, along with plans, drawings, and photographs detailing every aspect and consideration. Using inventive ideas and experimental approaches, Professor Park demonstrates the benefits graft in architecture can bring to any space.
