Dr. Carpenter's Longan tree wood model house

Yes, Dr. Carpenter's house project is one after another. 


After cutting, peeling and polishing Longan tree branches, this rod-type model house is now in the assembling stage, threading them all together with iron threads (instead of using thinner bamboo). Of course, there's need of considering structural loading as the rod-type wood truss is set up. I thought this project can be a thesis topic for the architecture graduate student, like the previous hinoki project. 


Let's see some photos and video clip here to catch some idea in detail.
