making and the territory : part 2

a shed between industry and nature


spring semester 2016 - ETH Zürich
(in team with Turi Colque)



To make a building is to make territory. For the project of a shed in schlieren situated between industry and nature, we designed a circular building buried into the ground, expressing flux, continuity and offering one facade : its roof.
Timber stand for the light roof structure, staying out of earth when concrete is meant for the base, supporting and keeping the wood out of the humidity of the earth and creating a stratification of materials in the shed.

The dug out earth is poured around, creating a pittoresque hilled landscape which contrasts with the sharp, bold and industrial aluminium disc.
