We found a 1972, 31′ Land Yacht on Craigslist. It’s in pretty good shape, and is a good candidate for renovation as the Mobile Collaboratory.
Last week we went and picked it up in Kansas City, Kansas. It’s now at the School of Architecture, Design and Planning’s East Hills Construction Innovation Lab so we can start planning for its future. We’ll be working with some of KU Engineering Professor Chris Depcik’s Ecohawks students to develop strategies for power and thermal comfort throughout the semester, as well as having events on campus and the region to promote participation in the programming of the MoCoLab. The actual renovation will take place in Spring 2014 and will be ready for use in May 2014.
