Wind and rain / Contre vents et marées


To resist to harsh wind and heavy rain, you can build thick walls and high walls. But you can also have an opposite approach such as the one created by James Stockwell Architects: they have built a house, inspired by sand dunes, which curved form seems to slide under the wind. It is also strong enough to protect the garden that is situated in the center of the crescent. Round and strong: well done.

Pour résister à des vents forts et de fortes pluies, vous pouvez construire des murs épais et de hauts murs. Mais vous pouvez aussi choisir l’approche opposée, comme la maison créé par les architectes de James Stockwell: ils ont construit une maison inspirée des dunes de sable, et dont la forme courbe semble glisser sous le vent. La structure est également assez résistante pour protéger le jardin situé au centre du croissant formé par les murs. Ronde et solide, bref magnifique !
