aside from studying and developing my own ideas about visionary architecture, I also work in an architectural practice. In the picture is a sketch which I have been adding to over the last few days when my hands are idle answering the phone or something. It is a detail of a floor junction between ground outside ground inside and the foot of a wall. I show insulation under the ground around the perimeter of the construct, I show the floor based off a simple small concrete ground beam with the infill slab on crushed hardcore, and a deep compacted sand bed. The wall is a simple rendered timber frame.  This idea uses significantly less concrete than a standard house floor build up… just trying to push the ideas of convention a little more each time….
