Unique Gridshell Building at Weald & Downland Open Air Museum, UKhttps://shltr.net/gridshl

Hello Lloyd,

I’m an occasional reader of your blog and I recently visited a fascinating building that you might be interested in. The actual building definitely doesn’t fit into the tiny homes category but I wonder if the technique could be modified to make a smaller dwelling? Or has it ever been used before on a smaller scale?

The building is located in the UK at https://www.wealddown.co.uk/ and there is a detailed description of the construction technique here https://shltr.net/gridshl

Keep up the good work,

Jeremy

  1. I was at the museum in 2006 and didn't see anything like that there. really feel I missed out now. Although I did love that museum and some of the small houses that had been moved there.
