Architecture Student Builds Rammed Earth Shelter at Taliesin West
When Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fellowship at Taliesin and Taliesin West was first developed, architecture students learned by doing, when they created their own desert shelters to live in. Today, this tradition lives on through School of Architecture at Taliesin students. Conor Denison recently completed his shelter, which incorporates the ancient sustainable building method of rammed earth. Here he dissects the process of creating and building the shelter from start to finish, and what he learned along the way.
