Students from KSU’s College of Architecture and Design have been designing and building 10’ cubed modular buildings to be located in Greensburg. Greensburg GreenTown is a nonprofit organization established to provide the residents of Greensburg, Kansas with the resources, information and support they need to rebuild Greensburg as a model green community following the May 2007 tornado.Each cube has a practical function and also educates people about green technology and products. The designs include Green Haus (pictured above and below), which displays various sustainable building materials and techniques with a LEED checklist, and Ice Cube (below), which features a rain water collection station (designed by Jacob Henley and Melody Meek).There are lots more photos and models on the moderns r us's Flickr site.Thanks to Gregory La Vardera, editor at materialicious.
