Hellowood Project Page

Our project page went up on the Hello Wood site. You can click here to see it.

The Cloister and Chapter House project is about developing structural detail and method-based investigations utilizing interpretations of traditional timber-framed constructs. We propose a standard assembly that can be used to construct an array of building types and could conceivably be expanded upon until infinity.

The project incorporates the Cathedral and Ruin to investigate the juxtaposition of temporary and permanence: habitation and visitation. Beyond adaptive re-use, to simply adaptive use. The existing grid system used to build the Cathedral will be be used to construct a Cloister, enclosing the stone foundation of the Ruin and creating an actual courtyard at the Cathedral site. Inside and around this courtyard, the Chapter House will be constructed.

Hello Wood Project Village 2017

Lucas and I will be attending the Hello Wood Art and Architecture program in Budapest again this year. Our project was selected by the jury yesterday and we will be one of 14 teams to build an installation. We have proposed to continue the work on the Alt-Cathedral we built last year, with the addition of the Cloister and Chapter House project. We are very excited.
