This proposal explores the extension of the landscape into the interior through the design of a spatial condition that is reminiscent of a grove of palm trees. This proposal creates a lightweight and linear canopy that allows for natural light to shimmer through the interior, giving the impression of existing within a grove.

The use of timber and steel allow for a lightness to emerge, which mimics a grove of palm trees, which in turn amplifies the role of the natural landscape in making architectural space. This material conditon and its integration with contemporary digital fabrication techniques allows for a rethinking of vernacular spatial conditions in the 21st century.
