9 Green Architecture Student Projects That Make the Grade

Shipping Pallet Building by the University of Colorado, Denver

Students in the design build program at the University of Colorado, Denver built two tremendous projects to enhance a local farm’s operations while making a definitive statement about sustainable design. Reuse was the project’s core lesson, and this building made of pallets is the beautiful result. Placed on a working farm near downtown Denver, the building will host classes and a farmers market, and will offer place to relax during a hard day’s labor.

Goat Milking Shed by the University of Colorado, Denver

The design build team also put together this amazing structure which is, of all things, a goat milking shed — but it is so much more. The built-in seating make it a place for human habitation too, and it rises from a core of gabion boxes filled with reused concrete tailings.

Temporary Bar by the Oporto School of Architecture

This temporary structure was the winning design for the annual Oporto School of Architecture’s bar design competition in Portugal. The design is based on a mass produced Ikea tub and is illuminated by LED lights to create the perfect party atmosphere.
