A-Frame House

Our 2015 Summer Camp at Smoke Farm, dubbed the Urban Morphology Lab, was split into several different groups, with most of the camp working on projects related to the Impossible City, our ongoing effort to build small structures for those experiencing homelessness in Seattle. Part of the camp worked on this A-Frame House, a unique design dreamed up by Alec Gardner.


Students and counselors spent the week learning basic carpentry skills, swimming in the Stillaguamish River, and enjoying communal meals, as well as a few bonfires.
