Cal Poly Pomona Architecture Students Aim to Revitalize Camping
California State Park cabins designed to attract younger, hipper crowd
A dozen architecture graduate students from Cal Poly Pomona recently took on the ambitious task of revitalizing camping. They spent two weeks researching the project and then another two weeks designing cabins based on specifications for size, portability and price. The designs for the cabins weren’t allowed to include electricity or running water.
The students created more than ten distinctively different cabin designs. At least one model they worked on is expected to be placed in a state park, but the hope is that it will prove so popular it will become the new standard for camping throughout California.
