The Jamboree will be a central point on the site, a spot of recognition , and warmth at the same time. The cozy roof made out of the surrounding earths creates an intimate space around the fireplace. The other side of the structure is a wood fired pizza oven with a covered prepping space, enough room for 3 cooks.
A self-supporting wooden structure will be the base for the roof that covers the clay pizza oven. The beams lean on each other, making it stable as a whole. The nodes at the top would be attached with bolts and at the bottom the structure is attached to the concrete foundation in the ground. The small slats on which the roof tiles are placed provides extra strength.
The elliptical floor plan creates more space under the structure and provides a space for the visitors to sit. They can then gather around the fire, whilst being protected from the weather.
The diameter of the beams is 12cm. The maximum beams are 6 meters long. By making an incision in the beams we could extend the length of the beams. To make this construction, a formula is needed, namely (1 meter x π) and then divided by the number of beams. Then you get a number that is the distance between primary and tertiary structure. If you keep that distance you will obtain this structure. This way you get a circle where the chimney of the pizza oven can go through.
To put the wooden beams in place, a base is needed to let the beams rest on, so the connection can be made. The base would consist of 2 wooden circles connected by beams, afterwards this base will be removed and the structure will stand on its own.
