Rivertree Academy, a nondenominational Christian outreach foundation that provides opportunities for children in the Como area, used the intellect of A&M College of Architecture students in a competition to create eco-friendly and cost-effective design concepts, construction schedules and operating costs that would help fundraising for a new boarding school.
"The team envisioned two-story dormitories built in U-shaped clusters for girls, boys and faculty, each with a courtyard in the center and four-foot roof overhangs providing plenty of shade. The dorms are to be equipped with solar panels and designed to produce more energy than they use. Additionally, the rooftops are to be outfitted with a rainwater capturing system, facilitating irrigation of the surrounding landscape."
"The unique farm/campus will be built on donated land, a former country club and golf course, located about 12 miles southeast of downtown Fort Worth."
Still not exactly sure where they're planning it. From that statement, it seems like it's a distance away from Como.
The winning team each received an award of $1000. I may not be an aggie, but this is still great to see.
