catenary model analysis
a physical model helped us define the general shape and load distribution of our desired arch
load analysis
defining two tributary area types allowed us to calculate the load carred by the arches
graphic statics
this was used to understand the load distribution throughout the arches, we used the lightest, heaviest, and end forces to define the cross sections.
the north portion acts as the administrative portion, the south as the active workshop

glulam panels hang from the the narrower steeper portions of the arches to create the asymmetric shape
