THE HYDROPHILIC HOOPHOUSE deploys common materials toward a typological transformation of a standard agricultural vernacular assembly. Hoophouses have a long tradition of affordable and efficient assembly techniques that establish micro-climates for extended season horticulture. This project challenges several standard practices, by advancing a structural and material approach that integrates a new rainwater collection technique. The hoophouse typology is revised through the environmental consideration of light, air and water, and is expressed through a common, yet rich material palette.
