The structure consists of rammed earth walls that support a "floating" timber roof. The idea is that the walls form a solid, heavy enclosure that is allowed to breakdown into the external space. The roof is a lighter wooden structure that is seperated from the heavy walls by clerestory windows. These allow light into the cabins from all four sides. The roof joists are exposed to the interior and continue out over the earth walls to form an overhang. The model investigates uses earth as a structural material and the type of space that is formed by thesse heavy walls and a floating roof.
