The Emerge cabin serves the purpose of a tiny classroom in a small Oregon city. The structure sits on a farmland and is an educative site for elementary school tours that are looking to learn about forest stewardship and sustainable forestry.
The tiny classroom was created with prefabricated panels of cross-laminated timber. The construction is a part of a design-build programme, called PLAIN. Under the supervision of professor Jason Griffiths, the micro cabin was brought to life by 13 students from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
The tiny classroom building sits on the property of the family-owned Bauman Tree Farm and it does not only seek to educate visitors. Its material use was selected to establish a correlation between the forest and the production of lumber.
