AHEC takes you behind the scenes where 15 RCA students created 12 very different seating installations using a wide range of US hardwoods while camping at Benchmark. These are not only great designs, but the students applied the knowledge provided by AHEC of Life Cycle Assessment when creating their chairs, benches and even a boat to assess their environmental impact.
