KU architectural students in Studio 804 slowly roll a section of their sustainable building out of their warehouse at Farmland Industries. The students have nearly completed construction of a prototype building for the city of Greensburg. For the project, the Studio 804 class reclaimed building materials from the Sunflower Army Ammunition Plant near De Soto. The building will be shipped to Greensburg on Monday in seven sections and assembled and completed on site ahead of the one-year anniversary of a massive tornado hitting the city.
