Elemental is a
series of publications exploring how variance in extreme weather conditions and
slight shifts in geographic position affects architecture. Created during a

speaks of the house (dwelling) which will consist of 4 walls and a roof to
shelter us from the elements, the sun, rain, ice and snow, a door to enter and

accurately survey the surrounding environment.
During the stay temperatures ranged between +4 to -35 Celsius.
Elemental 1:1 documents these temperature shifts.
