Tyler's "house built on art and ideas"

A student-built hut of wood and Plexiglas has become the semester's most talked-about installation at Temple's Tyler School of Art. The "house," as its creators, senior Elisa Mosley and junior Amy Borch, call it, is the final project for a two-year community arts class. Their assignment: "activate a space." The project intends to help open new avenues of discussion, filling the gaps that traditional education leaves behind, according to Pepon Osorio, the Tyler professor who has been teaching the class for six years. "This is an entirely relative place. Who's ever in it is the boss," said junior painting major Nigel Hieronymus. Larkin Dugan, a sophomore sculpture major, said the house should not be seen against the Tyler School right next to it. "Why do we have to be going perpendicular?" he said. The Inquirer's story about the house appeared on the front page of the "Local" section; the online version includes a video.
