Hair, Spikes, Cattail, and Turkeyfoot

One of the methods of representation that Lee looked to in order to document the construction process is a series of instructional drawings.

The series of instructional drawings outlines the steps to create the bundles of cattail, phragmite, and turkeyfoot that create the final result: a digitally fabricated thatch pavilion.

The final pavilion has an oculus (shown here) that is framed with the carefully trimmed fronds of the turkeyfoot bundles that make up the top several courses of the wall structure.

An axonometric representation of the final structure.
