GSBN:Fwd: What is exquisite about straw?
Here's a delightful question from a student at UC-Boulder:
"...what is exquisite about straw? What makes it so special, not
necessarily as a building material but simply for what it is?"
Garrett's email address is Garrett.Adrian@...; if
folks would CC any responses back to the list as well, I (for one) am
quite interested in reading them.

Subject: What is exquisite about straw?
I am currently a junior studying architecture at the University
in Boulder. I am enrolled in a building materials class in which I am working
on a project using straw. We are to make a cube out of straw that somehow
shows why straw is a beautiful material, or exquisite if you will.
Seeing as you are involved with straw bale construction, I would like to
ask you what is exquisite about straw? What makes it so special, not
necessarily as a building material but simply for what it is?
Any response would be greatly appreciated as it will greatly help in the
development of this project as a whole. If you have any questions regarding
the project or anything else, please feel free to ask as I would love to
answer. Thank you so much for your help!
