House for War Veteran Designed by Yale Students
October 1, 2008 * By Tim McKeough * Architectural Record

“Yale students have constructed a prototypical residence in New Haven, Connecticut, for a disabled female veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces and her family. Responsible for both design and construction, 64 students took the project from start to finish in just over five months as part of the Yale architecture school’s Building Project, a mandatory course for first-year graduate students. This year’s project was completed in collaboration with nonprofit developer Common Ground and the Connecticut Veterans Administration at a cost of $200,000—in addition to plenty of free labor and donated materials.”
