Drawing inspiration from surrounding agricultural structures, specifically local dutch barns, the guiding spatial principle behind the design process was to propose an alternative dutch barn typology built from local and readily available organic waste.
Dutch Barns are agricultural buildings primarily used to store hay. The structures have a roof but no wall and are typically built from with a steel frame and clad corrugated metal. Rather than using steel (high embodied carbon), could these structures be built from locally available organic waste?
