We would like to thank the cities of Miami Beach and South Miami, along with the Neighborhood Housing Services of South Florida, for their collaboration on a series of design studios on affordable housing solutions led by Jason Chandler and the FIU School of Communications, Architecture + the Arts.

ARC+ Community will continue to explore design solutions next semester as we plan to host a series of public policy dialogues with community stakeholders on a host of sustainable socio-economic solutions related to affordable housing. 

 

ARC+ Buildgreen - a moveable collaboration

ARC+ Buildgreen - a moveable collaboration

We are very pleased to share the digital version of our first publication:  

“A Moveable Collaboration, Exploring the Space Between Academia and Industry.”

We are grateful to the many people who made the ARC+ Buildgreen collaboration possible. 

We would like to thank FIU CARTA faculty and administration, the students who participated, and most importantly our founding sponsors: 

Buildworks

Grove Properties 

Urvanx Architecture 

A special thanks goes out to Henry Rueda, Assistant Professor and Alan Campos, Graduate Assistant for their tireless work in the design of the book.

The book captures our site visits over the course of three semesters and is focused on three specific courses: Materials and Methods of Construction, Integrated Comprehensive Design and Integrated Building Systems.

Students in these courses learn about design and building construction with assignments based on their Studio Projects. The interaction on real construction sites is the perfect platform to meet with developers, contractors, consultants and clients. 

It is the space for discussions, questions and collaborations.
