Community Oven | Part 3 of 3

On May 8th students and faculty from the College of Design, as well as Casa De Esperanza staff and supporters turned out to celebrate the completion of the oven (more images can be seen in the slideshow at right). The students then presented their design proposals for the reconfiguration of the shelter's outdoor spaces.

Funded in part by the architecture firm of Horty Elving, the oven will stand as a functional connection to traditional Latino culture.

Leaders of the course, adjunct instructors Marcelo Valdes and Benjamin Ibarra-Sevilla, will be featured as Citizen Architects in an upcoming issue of Architecture Minnesota. Look for their profile to appear this fall.
