During week 9 of the quarter, quarter research papers were due with presentations for the entire class. All quarter, I had researched the history, building techniques, and qualities of roof shingles and tiles that developed in Japan. In this process, I found much beauty and appreciation for the aesthetics of the roof as well as the dedication to quality in the craftsmanship. The methods of framing and dressing the roof was poetry for me that I saw echoing through the ages and into the present moment. Here is the power point presentation and I presented to the class.
