A greenhouse built with reciprocal structure-building techniques. From the vernacular construction technique of Pindos’ Shacks and Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic domes to open data and parametric design and fabrication tools, a self-supporting greenhouse structure was produced. Special focus was given to the solution of the nodes and to the reciprocal structure techniques, so that the self-supporting structure could be hacked and produced.
