ABOUT THIS PROJECT 2011

The Roundhouse Foundation and University of Oregon are collaborating to generate design ideas for a prototype   mobile, live/work art studio for Sisters.  The idea is to make  creative space available in town on currently under used commercial or  industrial locations as an investment in arts-based economic development.

University of Oregon architecture students are working this spring to envision the possibilities for such a prototype. Directed by Assistant Professor Erin Moore, the students are approaching the design problem in terms of wall enclosure, living and working spaces, construction sequencing,  and moveability.

  1. I just saw a few of your articles on the tiny house blog! I graduated from the UO AAA school (jewelry design) and was so excited to see this awesome project. After graduating, I moved to Bend, OR. Central Oregon is so beautiful and would be such a great location for this project. My brother owns a construction company in Bend and with his help, I’m planning to build myself a tiny mobile house later this year. I’m so inspired by the idea of having a living and working space! The students are doing a great job and have come up with some stunning plans. Keep up the good work, I’d be so excited to see these plans come to life in Sisters!
