Yestermorrow hosts AIA Vermont’s ‘Archistream’

For the next two weeks, there is a new addition to the Yestermorrow Campus. The renovated Airstream trailer parked in front of our main building is a Mobile Design Gallery and Education Center.

AIA Vermont has created this mobile architecture classroom to spread awareness of green ecological design around Vermont.  They call the trailer the 'Archistream' and it has been traveling around Vermont for the last 6 months, stopping around Vermont in places like the ECHO center on Burlington's Waterfront.

They were awarded a $42,750 Innovation Fund grant from AIA for the project. They purchased the used trailer, and undergraduate architecture students at Norwich university spent last winter remodeling the interior to house educational materials about design and hopefully bring more awareness about what architecture can do for them.

The Archistream is open to the public and will be parked out front for the next two weeks. Come see the engaging design, and learn more about ecological design in the process!
