Project Ouroboros was designed & built over three years (starting in 1973) by the incoming freshmen of Prof. Dennis Holloway’s Environmental Design class at the University of Minnesota.
The house was a platform for experimentation with new (and ancient) sustainable technologies including active solar collection, wind generator, a composting toilet and a sod roof.
Each fall, new participants were initiated through a weekend of camping in which they improvised their shelter from cardboard and PVC sheeting.
