Students Design/Build Micro Cabins in Colorado

This is the story of how students at the University of Colorado Denver designed this community of 14 micro cabins that now serve as dormitories.

The school is run by Outward Bound which is a nonprofit that promotes learning using outdoor experiences.

Each of the tiny cabins are between 140 and 200 square feet. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

    Well done! Simple but aesthetically pleasing! One question…just wondering why the roof is separated by a gap from the building? And what is on the top of the building to protect it from the elements? I appreciate the simplicity!

    This Work inevitably evokes that architecture also called Rationalist,
    Functionalism of Walter Gropius and Mies van der Rohe, which then
    will flow rapdly into the Minimalism, of which today we enjoy this
    magnificent Architecture so incredibly decisive and essential to
    satisfy all problems of the human living. Really it seems that the
    minimal the mood is more freedom of action. Expatiate with Esprit

    Again, no floor plans. 🙁 It’s hard to tell how many different buildings we’re seeing, & whether we’re seeing multiple views from within one, or if each photo shows a different interior.
