Gridshell Visit

written by: 50degrees on 18.08.15


Leigh visited the Weald & Downland Centre last week near Chichester and got to see the Stirling listed ‘gridshell building’. An amazing structure made of 4 layers of cross connected timber each piece no bigger than 3×2″ to span a massive area. The building is used to educate in timber construction with courses, exhibitions and seminars on site. The whole thing has a good sense of calm, probably due to the timber and location in a wooded area. Very relaxing. Even the kids were interested. Highly recommended.
