Teamwork and Timbers

Brittany Collins | Dec. 5, 2013 | Notre Dame News

On a snowy November afternoon, fourth-graders from South Bend’s Madison Primary Center came to the University of Notre Dame campus to build a barn.

The 21 elementary students met with fifth-year School of Architecture students at the Stepan Center on Nov. 12 (Tuesday) for a barn raising, part of the Michigan Barn Preservation Network’s “Teamwork and Timbers” program.

Aimee Buccellato, assistant professor in the School of Architecture, organized the event after hearing about the program, which brings the barn around to various schools and organizations so children in grades four through 12 can experience architecture and history firsthand.
