WHAT IS IT ALL ABOUT? MAKING A LIVING BY PROJECTING WHAT COULD BE?

MY MISSION IN THE ARCHITECTURAL WORLD. THE BUILD ENVIRONMENT EXTREMELY IMPORTANT FOR THE PLANET AND MANKIND.

KRIS FAGAN & DEBORA FAGAN RESIDENCE, YUCCA VALLEY CALIF.

THE FIRST CLIENTS THAT WERE SERIOUS ABOUT BUILDING WITH AN ECO FRIENDLY EARTH MOUND FORMING SYSTEM IN HARMONY WITH THE DESERT. CLIENT WITH BULLDOZING EXPERIENCE.

KRIS WAS GOING TO BUILD THE BASIC STRUCTURE HIMSELF.

PROJECT ON HOLD

I WOULD LIKE TO BUILD A SMALLER VISION FOR MYSELF.

THE CONCEPT IS TO USE A DIRT MOUNDING FORMING SYSTEM AS THE FORM TO POUR A THE THIN SHELL CONCRETE ROOF. DIGGING OUT THE EARTH MOUND AFTER THE CONCRETE SETS. SOLERI DID THIS WITH CONSANTI. ANOTHER ARCHITECT, BUILT A HUGE CONCERT HALL IN SAN DIEGO THAT USED BULLDOZERS TO MOUND THE DIRT,

I PROPOSING USING CAISSONS FOR SUPPORT COLUNM POINTS. THE REST OF THE WALLS INFILL OF GLASS AND NON BEARING WALLS.

CASA CONGO, NICARAGUA

CASA CONGO DID NOT BUILD THE HYPERBOLIC SYSTEM PROPOSED

INSTEAD THEY BUILD A LARGE RECTANGULAR SHED. THUS I PROPOSED USING THE SHED AND CONSTRUCTION METHODS AS A SPRING POINT TO BUILD OFF OF TO COMPLETE THE PROJECT.

A MASTER PLAN WITH BAMBOO STRUCTURES THAT COULD BE ADDED TO AS NEEDED. WATER WASTE PURIFICATION AND INTENSE FOOD PRODUCTION GARDENS INCORPORATED.

UNFORTUNATELY A PUBLIC PROTEST IN NICARAGUA RESULTED IN DEATHS AND FAMILIES LEAVING THE COUNTRY , THUS HAMPERED THE EGO SURFING COMPLEX. BUT THE CASA CONGO GROUP IS STILL IN TACT AND DOING POSITIVE COMMUNITY SERVICES.

  2. Hi Glen,

    I drop in now and then to see how you’re doing, always pleased to see your latest project work. You’ve still go it; terrific work.

    All my best and hi to Jasmina.
