Actively bending slender natural materials and combining them with other linear or planar materials into stiff structural hybrids has been prevalent in vernacular architecture since the beginnings of human dwellings and homes. Engaging examples of this can be seen in the traditional Mudhif in Afghanistan or traditional Iranian felt tents. While the concepts and technology of such hybrids is not new, there is great potential for novelty and innovation in the digital tools necessary for their design. The hybrid structures built for Project Village 2016 will also host the village museum with an ongoing exhibition of villagers work such as sketches, drawings and a sculpture park.
