NYIT Architecture Students Need Your Help - New Kickstarter Campaign

Tobias Holler, architect and professor at the New York Institute of Technology with the generous support of almost 200 people who backed the first kickstarter campaign, was able to bring over 30 NYIT architecture students to Costa Rica in July and August.  These students donated their time and skills to help build  the Nosara Recycling and Education Center.  German filmmaker Ayana de Vos recorded every phase of the construction for her documentary film project, shooting over 60 hours of footage, with multiple cameras, and conducting countless interviews with the participants.

The project is far from completed, and much work remains to be done before the building is ready to help with the local waste management problem. The local workers continue to build the project right now, but without help from the student volunteers, construction is progressing at a much slower pace. In order not to loose the momentum of this important community project it is crucial that the students go back and help finish the building, and the documentary film about it!  An additional kickstarter campaign has been hatched to help fund these efforts.

The team is now looking to fund a portion of the student’s expenses while volunteering on the construction site in Nosara for three weeks in January 2013, and to enable Ayana to continue to shoot the construction process, so that the project can be prominently featured in her documentary film about waste management and sustainability in Costa Rica.
