Pine Tree Pavilion

Ithaca, New York

This was my B. Arch Thesis project at Cornell University. I developed a theory called 'Macrobiotic Design' which centered around site harvested materials, seasonal adaption and occupant awareness. After presenting the theory for my final review, I spent six months putting the ideas to the test and building a small structure for real. This exercise opened me up to the world of natural building and I am grateful for the experience. It's open to the public along the trail to Six Mile Gorge, if you are in Ithaca, please visit!
