Sanctuary In The Round
This sanctuary in the round north of Crestone, Colorado contains 12 ridge lines and 12 valleys in the roof system. The original roof was canvas and needed replacement. Designer Rob Galloway replaced the old roof with this complex new design. A steel cable at the top of the wall serves as a moment ring keeping the walls from splaying outward. Although a true round building it proves less cost effective to build than an octagon. Click on picture to see a close up.
