The Willow House

The Willow House

MA Design Workshop, Fall Semester 2013

This Workshop is part of the 3D Nature project and explores how to use an organic material - willows - to grow architecture. It aims at exploring various techniques for growing such as grafting and weaving in order to design a house that functions. Students were asked to develop an architectural design proposal for a site in Delft with a plot size of 300m2 of which 22% was allowed to be built.
