In 2006, graduate student Michael Bricker received the School of Architecture’s (SOA) Mebane Travel Grant to visit Mongolia to design an energy efficient home for a family in the community of Yeroo. Upon receiving funding from the SOA, Michael invited graduate student Ami Mehta to assist with the research and design of the proposed home. Together, Michael and Ami decided to expand the scope of the project to include two independent study courses to research Mongolian architectural history—namely the ger, Chinese Buddhist temples, and Soviet civic buildings—and to investigate the architectural consequences of a newly democratic, modern Mongolia. During their stay in Mongolia, Michael, Ami and Jacob Knight, a colleague working in the Peace Corps in Mongolia, documented the built environment and have contributed almost four hundred digital images, along with descriptive metadata, to the SOA Visual Resources Collection (VRC). The images in this exhibit represent a small sampling of images selected from the group that are available for use by the university community as part of the VRC's Online Image Collection.
