Alm collaborates on straw-bale construction project

The first permitted straw-bale construction project since the ill-fated straw-bale house was demolished by Minneapolis officials several years ago will debut this weekend. Lucas Alm (Architecture) collaborated with Sunny Day Earth Solutions and Mark Morgan of Bear Paws Design and Construction on the project, a garage, "that will also serve as a training, demonstration, and data-collection site" according to Kim Palmer's account in the Star Tribune. Alm will work on the project's data collection.
