Not only has the group grown into a multi-disciplinary collaboration of students of architecture, engineering, and graphic design (among others), but those students have transformed a once-empty 40’ shipping container into a solar-powered library, complete with interior lighting and fans and an external shading device. The group partnered with a local electrician who generously donated all labor and materials to connect the power. For the full story, click here.
