This is a timber shelter project designed for Henderson High School. It is a pre-fabricated timber structure applied with the reciprocal structural system to created a long spin roof structure.
The idea was to assemble the shelter out of the flat pack assemble panels like IKEA furniture. Each structural components were fabracated by the CNC router out of a full sheet of flat plywood. It allows the user able to get the structure assembled with the minimum time spend, skill, and tools requirements.

The shelter itself was designed to be an outdoor learning kiosk for the Henderson High School students, collaborating with the Science Department of HHS. Biology knowledge and background information was engraved on the color panel which is then inlaid onto the column of the shelter.
Specific plants was learnt on the class and grew by the students on the bottom of the column, reinforce learning by get their hands onto the objects.
It can also be used as a shelter for the surrounding community to gathering around in their spare time.
