The project is headed by the two principals of Studio HT as part of a class of the Design Build Program at the University of Colorado Denver. The Learning Cube is a simple framed structure with shipping pallets as infill. While the materials are rough the careful construction and design give it a refined presence. The building is a gathering point to hold meetings and classes, sell produce, and to get out of a blazing Colorado summer sun.

Students of the University of Colorado Denver built these two tremendous projects to enhance the farm's operation as well as to make a definitive statement about sustainable design as a part of the FEED Denver program. Using mostly salvaged materials the team put together a high design public gathering shelter and milking shed that do not easily give away their humble use or materials.
