Summary In 1993, late architect Samuel Mockbee founded Auburn University's Rural Studio, an education program in which architecture students leave the university setting to live and work in rural Hale County, Alabama. In one of the poorest parts of America, a community in which 1 in 4 citizens live in poverty, students use donated and recycled materials to build homes and community facilities. The film presents the story of students' experiences during a typical year.
Note Special features: Mockbee interviews (13 min.); Architect interviews (22 min.); Deleted scenes (30 min.); Projects (22 min.).
