{not your average naadam}

Colorado College recently hosted a summer class entitled “Vernacular Architecture: The Yurt.”

In constructing a yurt, the class was educated on the history of yurts and countless handicraft, woodworking, and construction techniques. Led by Professor Scott Johnson, the students succeeded in building what we here at the society see as one of the most beautiful and sublime objects ever to come out of the college. All programming and design work was arrived at by group consensus, while all components are made by hand. The wood was sourced from Casey’s Lumber and either comes from Colorado or the campus itself.

Students, faculty, staff: This yurt is yours to use. As part of the programming, anyone at the college is able to make use of this for academic or personal endeavors.
