Professor Barker, my advisor, is a brand new faculty member who was recently hired at Snow College to teach in the Construction Dept. He comes from an architectural design background. This year, we are able to construct a tiny home which will assist in the development of the prototype "The Other Side Village" designed specifically to assist with the homeless concerns in Salt Lake County. A similar village to this was constructed in Austin, Texas, and recently received approval by the Salt Lake City Council and Mayor. This planning project has received quite a bit of news media attention recently. I am excited be part of this project and learn about building design, social concerns, and how the architectural design and construction industry can assist society in addressing these issues.
