The 12 feet wide and 16 feet long Wikihouse sits among a stand of Japanese knotweed on the far side of the West Campus Urban Farm. F&ES student, Peter Hirsch, built the revolutionary structure as part of his research on the feasibility of open source and efficient design technologies. The building will be used by a variety of campus organizations for research, educational classes and community activities.
