Anasazi Inspired Space

This 10-foot diameter circular room was inspired by visits to Chaco Canyon in New Mexico.  There is still much clay-straw adobe to add, especially to these walls that exceed 2-feet in width.  Planned is a massive 200-pound slab of translucent Honeycomb Calcite stone, that will be placed in the wall and backlit with solar-powered lighting inside the wall.

This space will be the heart of my digital video editing & post-production studio. My goal was for the stone, earthen walls and illuminated translucent calcite to provide the feel of an ancient environment, in which 21st century digital film projects will emerge from.
