An old school bus is turned into an functional, modern RV.
Hank Butitta said he was tired of drawing buildings that would never exist for imaginary clients. He prefers working with with hands. So, for his Masters final project at the University of Minnesota he designed and created an RV using the shell of a school bus. He said there are too many architecture students who don’t understand basic physical limitations of materials or how they can be joined.
In Hank’s blog he explains:
“This project was a way to show how building a small structure with simple detailing can be more valuable than drawing a complex project that is theoretical and poorly understood. I think we need more making in architecture!”
Now that his project is complete, Hank will be taking his bus on a circle tour to the West Coast and back to his home in Minnesota.
