Outline

This is a cow barn. The following 3 points are architectural challenges. First, the contextual response to the beautiful site. Picking up the gentle slope in the beginning, the roof form gradually raised and reached to the climax on the other side of the building. Second, the simple standing to regard the building just as the production facility. The facility do not accept the tourism inside. It does not flatter the tourist. Third, the challenge of the structural system. The wooden truss structural system sit on the framed perpendicular steel beam.
