KU Students Design Sustainable Building Project

Since 1912, the Chamney (CHAMM-nee) Dairy Farm has been a Lawrence landmark. In the 1970s, the University of Kansas bought the property...and now, it's getting a decidedly modern makeover by a group of KU architecture students. KPR intern Becky Sullivan reports that the revamped site, which will be the home of the KU Center for Design Research, could be a harbinger of what's to come in developing "green" technologies for buildings on the KU campus.

An open house will take place tomorrow (SAT) morning at the Center for Design Research, when the facility will officially "power up" with a public dedication ceremony. You can see the project and explore its green building and power technologies from 10:30 to noon. For more information, visit .
