Prairie Acre Ribbon Classroom
The Prairie Acre Ribbon Classroom was created by students of Paola Sanguinetti’s Architecture 509 Design and Build Studio during the spring of 2018. The students were tasked with developing an outdoor classroom for the KU Center for Sustainability that complements Prairie Acre, supports the Environmental Studies Program, and facilitates educational and recreational use of the prairie. On May 9, 2018, the class unveiled their semester project.
The classroom is located on the northeast side of Prairie Acre. The space caters to both group and individual study and is open to all students, staff, faculty, and visitors to campus. The site can be accessed from stairs at the corner of Sunnyside Avenue and Sunflower Road, or from the walkway off Lilac Lane. An accessible route is available from Parking Lot 10, south of Watson Library.
