Entry Description

The Barn (2016) is the inaugural project for The Bridge District, a new development in West Sacramento, CA. The first-ever structure of its kind, The Barn has hosted festivals, farmers markets, TED talks, etcetera at the center of a framed view of Downtown Sacramento over the Sacramento River. Situated within the Northern California agricultural zone, the project honors the region’s rich heritage. The Barn, entirely constructed from wood, stays true to how traditional barns are built, yet with the aid of parametric design, the project delivers a non-traditional shape with traditional material.
