75.9

2015 / Wood, Fabric Formed Concrete, Mirrored Glass, Glass

75 is a house constructed on a hay farm in the Canadian Pacific Northwest. The house makes use of a technique of pouring concrete into fabric formwork deployed within minimal plywood rib structures, yielding walls and columnar roof forms. The trumpet shape of the columnar elements is hollow, allowing planting of mature trees on the occupied roofscape, and their differing height and position describe a cinematographic narrative of domestic habitation.
