Date of Defense 2008-12-03 Availability unrestricted AbstractThis thesis explores the possibilities of using varied long span glue-laminated
arches to create a dynamic structural enclosure over an expansive open surface.
It investigates using arches that increase and decrease in height and span width,
while varying in their lean. When combined with a fabric enclosure, they create a
roof that constantly changes. The idea is to create a world class equestrian center
that is visually exciting from both the interior and exterior, rather than simply
creating a large scale version of a barn.
