This project explores the relationship between raw wood and standard timber through active bending. A series of, 45x45x130mm, timber joint were developed in order to connect and actively bend raw wood sticks.Relying on both standardized and customized digital construction methods, the structure considers scalability, ease of install, and natural strengths and weaknesses of the material. … Read more

Digital woodcraft

Exploring the unique properties of timber and the fabrication methods associated with it, enabling us to work with complex geometries and find appropriate strategies to realize them. We started out looking at different situations to apply our geometry and potentially make a gapahuk (a building made of wooden materials, originally intended for emergency accommodation), forest … Read more

Timber Pergola

Exploring the Strength and Beauty of Wood Joinery The Timber Pergola project is a study of timber joineries, which explores the use of linear and square shapes with 90-degree angles in the horizontal direction and a 12-degree joint to create a tension structure in the vertical direction. The project is inspired by the Forests of … Read more
