Roof Geometry

Concept:  Accent the values of spatial planning  in addition to adding visual dynamics to the east...perhaps physically showing the reason we place the doorway to the eastern cardinal.
A  hogan's  value lies within the sacred domain of its unobstructed interior.  The structure is revealed...It implies form. My interpretation continues this precept yet I am elaborating it in a contemporary remake.  
This study is about how I intend to define 'Navajo Architecture; in today's realm.  It  is about experience...a interwoven display of cultural adherence and creative aptitude.
