Long Roof of Carpentry

  • Schwanden, Glarus Süd, Glarus, Switzerland
  • A long roofed community space to foster timber culture and craft
  • Concerned with preserving the knowledge and skill of carpentry, making it easier for young people to explore the craft and strengthening the community by creating a public community space for woodworking and social events.
  • The roof will be built by the community itself over a long period of time. The structure is simple to build and members small to allow easy handling.
