Students construct tiny house

Cummings High School advanced art students learned something about architecture, construction and sustainability when they built a “tiny” recyclable house. Students Jessica Canar Quito, Ricardo Guerrero, Eloisa Pacheco-Baltazar and Erla Sosa took inspiration from Prizker Architecture Prize winner Shigeru Ban and his shelters for disaster relief made of cardboard and the socalled “tiny-house movement,” to build houses of just a few hundred square feet. They built their own cardboard house at school with recyclable materials including a cardboard exterior.
