For my fifth project of second year, we had to design a long span roof from pieces of dowell. It was only a 1 week project so it’s not in that much depth. To create the curves on the wood, we steamedthe balsa and slowly bent it ito shape.
This sheet shows all the sketches i did to come up with the idea for this roof. The main concept was to have a twisting truss. It didnt quite twist as much as we were hoping, but i still like the result!
