AIA Vermont Airstream

According to the AIA website, A group of Norwich University undergraduate architecture students are transforming a 21-foot 1969 Airstream Globetrotter into a mobile outreach, education, and design center over the course of the next six months. This project was made possible by AIA Vermont when the acquired a grant from AIA National Innovation Fund. After the trailer is transformed, AIA volunteers will take the vehicle on the road to various communities around the state and be used in a multitude of ways. Their goal is to engage the general public and shed light on the positive contributions architects can make.

This project has many similarities to ours and we will definitely be paying close attention to their progress. The fact that both projects have a strong aim to engage the community and serve as an aid to those who need it is encouraging, and hopefully will spark the interest of others to both utilize our contributions and to create projects of their own.
