NYIT architects and engineers led by Assistant Professor of Architecture Tobias Holler are building a recycling center this month in Nosara, Costa Rica. They arrived in Costa Rica on June 30 and have already constructed some of the facility. The project began as a design contest among NYIT student teams in fall 2011. Since then, Holler and his team have raised $21,350 on kickstarter.com to fund their efforts. Read a blog about their activities in Costa Rica.
