With a few thousand straws, a group of young architects and designers sought out to present a multisensory experience that invokes environmental awareness and appreciation for green initiatives.

At the recent Architect’s Week spearheaded by the Tulane School of Architecture, each participating group of students was tasked to work with an accomplished designer and create an installation based on sensory interaction, with a particular emphasis on green options, a maximum footprint of 64 square feet, a maximum volume of 1,000 cubic feet, and a budget of $350.

Out of 8 groups that represented over 100 students, the winning group created a blurry architectural space out of over 17,000 straws. Dubbed “Straw-Blurry Fields,” the project sought out to engage the senses of sight, touch, and sound with its unique composition and design theme.

Check out the award-winning design in the video below:
