Iowa State University presents cabin design to South Sioux City

SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Neb. (KTIV) - Some architecture students from Iowa State University presented their design ideas for a cabin that'll be constructed at Scenic Park in South Sioux City, Nebraska this summer.

Twenty-one students stood before city officials to show off the design they're calling "The Cube".

The group decided on a simple design plan for the cabin, a one hundred sixty-five square foot steel box, that'll be lined with harvested re-claimed barn wood.

Students say they hope it has an organic feel.

The project is estimated to cost thirty thousand dollars.

Students say it's a win for the city and a win for their resume.

Andrea Niehus, Landscape Architecture Major says, "We're working with real clients, and the process, and the requirements and understanding what they need, and what they want out of it, and what's going to be best for the community."

The cabin will be constructed near the other two cabins that Iowa State students designed over the last two years.
