Passive Solar Greenhouse


The Passive Solar Greenhouse  is the second design/build Bridges Between project. The greenhouse was completed in fall 2013. The goal was to extend the growing season for the villagers of Cchulemu, while creating a cultural bridge through architecture and cultivation.

Bridges Between volunteers consisted of Graduate Architecture Students, a fourth year Medical Student, and Faculty from the University of Utah. In addition, Bridges Between had volunteers from outside of the university setting join and contribute to the project. The volunteers learned native building techniques and cultural customs while working together with local builders from the region.
