An Anglo-American Geometrical Design Dialogue

A4 297 x 210 mm / 12 pages / full colour

A four day geometrical design dialogue between Rick and Nicole Collins of Trillium Dell Timberworks, USA, and Laurie Smith, UK. First published in the Mortice and Tenon, journal of the UK Carpenters' Fellowship, the text records a four day geometrical design workshop that commenced during a visit to the Saxon timber church at Greensted juxta Ongar in Essex and concluded at Church Lodge, Sutcombe in Devon. The dialogue, which covered historic examples of geometrical building design as well as practical drawing techniques, was also a prelude to a co-operative design and build project in the USA (see Appleton Octagonal Pavilion on this site).
