This year’s Studio North project will be a Consumable Sugar Shack. The structure will be designed and built over a six day period, then slowly burned next spring as we turn maple sap into maple sugar. Sort of like Burning Man north. No idea what it will look like yet. That is the fun part.

And it does sound like fun, doesn't it? and Robert Linn have been running short design-build summer programs ("small-scale rural interventions") for a few years now, and Keith asked me to spread the word concerning the upcoming one:
This June 23th to 28nd we will be hosting our fourth Studio North Design Build Workshop. For the first three sessions in 2011, 2012 and 2013 we had students join us from all over the country. Over six days Keith Moskow FAIA and Robert Linn AIA work hand in hand with the students to design then build an innovative structures.
STUDIO NORTH Building small-scale rural interventions
Moskow Linn Architects
STUDIO NORTH is a six day intensive building workshop. The workshop offers students the opportunity to engage with the rural landscape and to imagine, develop and construct inventive design solutions. An architectural education is best experienced through engagement in all aspects of the building process.
The workshop takes place on a 117 acre farm in Norwich, Vermont. Each session investigates a particular interest and responds with the design and construction of a complete prototype structure. The workshop is limited to ten students.
