Don't architects seem like an elitist, in-service-to-rich-people bunch? Yes they do, no matter how fascinating their area of work might be. The University of Washington School of Architecture is trying to help change that, with three programs in which students design and build for regular folks. They are the Global Community Studio, the Housing Solutions Studios, and the Local Neighborhood Studio. Studio at Large shows some of the student work from these studios. Community gardens, houses, schools, and health centers are among the projects described in essays illustrated with drawings, plans, photographs of the finished structures, and photographs of the building process.
