Reciprocal Roof Pavilion Workshop - Fox Maple

Costa Rica Timber Framing 2019

Reciprocal Roof Pavilion Workshop

Nosara, Costa Rica

November 2-13, 2019


Fox Maple began its workshop program in Costa Rica in 2001. With the exception of the past two years, when we were engaged in building a new learning center on the beach in Nosara, these workshops have been an annual event. Through these years a new vernacular style of building has evolved based on the supply of resources on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, utilizing a combination of round and naturally curved timbers joined to square, and square to round. In this workshop we will be building a 12 sided, 40 foot diameter, 3-tiered reciprocal roof pavilion. The 12 teak posts will be scribed to stone, and the frame will be fully joined. This is a 12 day workshop and will include all food and camping on the beachfront site.
