    Description

    A report and critical commentary is presented on the use of small diameter roundwood in building construction in the United States and England. Examples are discussed of roundwood joinery being evaluated at the USDA Forest Service's Forest Products Laboratory, and joinery developed by the British engineering consulting firm Buro Happold, working over 15 years in the development of roundwood use in Europe. Three buildings constructed at Hooke Park in Dorset, England, using small diameter roundwood thinnings as the structural members are profiled, demonstrating the range of applications from small domestic scale to a very large enclosed workshop space. These precedents will inform the construction of traditional Navajo hogan shaped buildings in northern Arizona in the development of local roundwood industries.
