In the House of Earth + Light, designed by Marwan Al-Sayed, 18-inch-wide poured earth walls contrast sharply with the lightweight triple fabric roof. A ventilated glass and steel bridge spans the structure and is anchored by the monolithic earthen walls forming the two main volumes on opposite sides of the wash. The poured earth volumes incorporate the study (shown here), kitchen, bedrooms, and bathrooms.
