Our Mission

The CU Denver Undergraduate Design Build course series focuses on the relationship between service learning, international perspectives and architectural intervention. The students will design a functional community building and fundraise monies for materials for the village of Quebrada Ceiba, Puerto Rico . The building, with input from community leaders, will provide a site for The people in the somewhat mountain terrain have no easy access to a grocery store for produce and dry goods. The other part of their issue is that there is no public transportation to a town with access to a grocery store, also a majority of the citizens do not have a car or type of personal motorized transportation. Our goal is to refurbish and transform an existing community structure that is currently siting vacant and unused into a CoOp community store for the sale of groceries, dry goods, and any other products that would feasible to store and sell.


In the big picture, architecture is the art and science of making sure that our cities and buildings fit with the way we want to live our lives.
