With the help of Charron Ungar, President, Avi Urban, students in the Environmental Design Faculty (EVDS) at the University of Calgary are exploring mass customization in residential architecture. Ungar is playing an important role in the reDESIGN Centre, where real world housing projects mix with industry professionals.
Students recently presented their final designs for work/live spaces to Ungar and Professor Brown (check out the photo, Ungar on right). Sponsored by Avi Urban, students at the reDESIGN Center challenged what can be done when designing homes through mass customization.
“We believe in the value of education and giving back to the community,” says Ungar. “The students that I’m working with may soon be directly involved in the home building industry and have a future effect on urban growth. It was a great opportunity to provide insight into how we build and market our homes.”
