A volume of rammed earth is flanked by a free-standing wall of the same material.  The arrangement of these elements creates two spaces:  one enclosed and one exposed.

Both spaces are delineated by the floor and roof planes, which protect from the heavy rains and intense sun.  From one eucalyptus tree, the three roof trusses were produced.

The construction becomes a distillation of building elements:  plinth and roof, wall and opening, base and lintel.

The pavilion was constructed in six weeks by a team of five people in rural Ghana.
