The purpose of this project, displayed in Grains disere earth festival, was to display the potencies of wood and raw earth and show how we can combine a material considered heavy (earth) with a light material (wood) in construction.
A raw earth facade shows a progression in transparency, while a wood facade shows a progression in light. In between the two facades wooden frames are filled with different earth mixes displaying a variety of textures and degrees of transparency, and create different qualities of spaces to be explored by visitors of the annual Grains disere exhibition.
