Designing place-based ecologies.

3 Cent Studio


3 Cent Studio is…

A design-build program in Hancock County, GA. Six students will stay on historic 3 Centuries Farm outside Sparta in Hancock County for a 6 week design-build residency. The 3 Cent program will have an emphasis on understanding the existing context to foster grassroots ideas from the community. Students will catalogue, document and rethink an existing place through various methods of representations (including record drawings, sketching, photography, film, and oral history). As 3 Cent grows, future students will be responsible to document past projects in order to catalog lessons learned and understand inevitable failures of social design, and these lessons will carry over to better inform the next project.

All lodging, food, and transportation within Hancock County will be covered by the program. Students are only responsible for transportation to 3 Cent Farm and back home. Architecture students will receive professional AXP credit to count towards their licensure hours.

The program is multidisciplinary, and architecture, photography, film, and writing students, as well as other creative disciplines, are all encouraged to apply. For more info on 3 Cent Studio’s program, click here.

We are now accepting applications for our Summer 2019 residency. Applications will be responded to on a rolling basis. Final day to submit is April 22nd and final notices will be April 26th.
