Get some hands on experience with round-wood design in a gazebo construction workshop facilitated by local architect Roald Gunderson. WholeTrees Architecture and Structures™ will guide participants through the process of peeling timbers, round wood joinery, design and other structural components of this whimsical garden destination. Come join the fun in this exciting addition to the KCF grounds wildscape!
Roald Gundersen has devoted the better part of the last 20 years exploring and experimenting with natural building and the architecture of small diameter round timber. He co-founded WholeTrees™ with Amelia Baxter, and serves as President and Principal Architect. Gundersen has designed and built WholeTrees™ round timber assemblies into structures ranging from passive solar greenhouses, residences, an eco-tourism resort, restaurants, educational facilities and an office building.
Since returning to his native Wisconsin in 1993, Gundersen has taken a hands-on-learning approach to architecture and materials, inspired by the wisdom of the 134 acres of forests he stewards near La Crosse, WI. He raises two children with Amelia Baxter, and when not with them or in the office, he can be found roaming the woods for hours.
