Glass House Analysis


Design Components Comparison
This design exercise considers Lina Bo Bardi’s Glass House in São Paulo, a canonically modernist building, and reimagines how the design might evolve if built with mass timber.
Construction Detail Comparison
Due to the impressive spanning capabilities of cross-laminated timber, the final iteration considers arching the roof.
