This exhibition of photography and architectural models represent projects produced by Rural Studio, a design | build program of Auburn University. Among projects represented here are three projects devoted to Perry Lakes, located near Marion, Alabama: Bathrooms, Birding Tower and Pavilion. Other projects include the Antioch Baptist Church in Perry County and the Newbern Fire Station. Rural Studio of Auburn University was established in 1993 by Samuel Mockbee (1944-2001) as a field learning extension for Auburn’s architecture program. Mockbee achieved international recognition for his successes with this program and was a recipient of the MacArthur Foundation Genius Grant.
