Before putting down any line, there are some site criteria we need to assess. The 'machine', that is the structure needs to address the geographical location, climate/seasonal conditions, foundation, etc or simply a thorough architectural site analysis. When we know that then we could create something appropriate for its climate zones/geography. From there, the technologies, visual aesthetics, eco-green materials and cultural styles could go any direction.
