Tea house - structural grid

Geometry and symmetry are two big themes in this building. The structural grid is a 16 sided circle with two opposite quarters being replaced by a quarter of a 20 sided circle. This shape provides not one but two spots surrounded by building. These spots are filled with vegetation or a tree, people within the building can look at the nice vegetation from behind the glass curtain walls. This building shows the wooden structure inside the building. Since the structure makes sure the building doesn’t fall over, there are no structural load-bearing walls in this building. The frames formed by the structure are filled with stability walls or are covered by glass.
