Abstract
This 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.
