Project [un]Contained


Project [un]Contained embodies the achievable idea that harsh environments should not result in harsh living conditions. What this undergraduate capstone project aims to do is apply what we have learned at the University of Colorado, Denver to make a positive impact in underdeveloped countries. Our self-sustaining, hyper-efficient shipping container home will be cost effective, simple to maintain, and adaptable to any environment. This impactful prototype home will be designed with the country in most need in mind: Haiti.

Project [un]Contained is a fascinating example of students from an array of disciplines coming together to make change happen in places that need it the most. From architectural designers, mechanical engineering students and one of our own web and graphic designers, Project [un]Contained is on its way to becoming a successful undergraduate capstone project as well as an undeniable development in the nonprofit sector.
