Downland Gridshell - Edward Cullinan Architects and Buro Happold Engineers

wd2All the architecture of this Sussex, UK, museum is in the shell, made from long thin oak laths 'draped' into place over supporting arches.




  1. Superb--and our local council's building inspector would have as much chance of understanding the engineering behind that as a monkey would of understanding Hubble.

  2. Yeh, this is awesome stuff PC. I knew there was another reason for reading your blog - besides reading my own posts and wondering why nobody was commenting ;-)
