It starts from scrap wood and plastic bags until the addition of two room bamboo house complete with an open courtyard. The bed is designed and placed so that one could see the moon as he or she falls asleep. The long house has a bedroom on one end and a kitchen and living space on the other, separated by an open courtyard with hammocks. The roof system consists of inverted cones of bamboo rings layered by a larger metal protective roof. This open air construction and the large overhanging tin roofs automatically serve as natural ventilation with ample shade from the hot sun. The foundation is poured concrete and the structure is formed with steel, while the bamboo rings are covered in burlap to provide more shade and protection. Design by Benjamin Garcia Saxe
