Telluric: Architecture Emerging from Earth
Prof. George Katodrytis


This project explores a collaboration between earth and the human factor to create architecture. With the human intervention of designing and building a structure, that is later covered by the natural materials emerging from earth, hence the name “Telluric”. The natural process of crystallization is encouraged by the climate and the ground components in the location of Sabkha desert in Abu Dhabi. The material growing on the structure develops space enclosure, designed to be a therapeutic space.
