Abstract

This book explores the varied ways in which wood is used in contemporary architecture, showcasing a wide selection of architectural achievements from across North and South America, Europe, and Asia.These buildings serve a wide range of purposes, from housing to schools, museums and auditoriums, to sports complexes or cultural centres. This is proof, if any were needed, of just how important wood is in architecture today, as either a structural building material or a form of cladding, opening up new horizons for clients and architects alike. The introduction takes a detailed analytical look at the different functions played by wood in modern-day architectural design, and in a world where solutions to climate-related challenges are a longawaited necessity. The ensuing chapters zoom in on a generous selection of buildings, along with sketches, layouts, cross-sections, and detailed execution plans, illustrating the importance of wood in building the architecture of the future through the myriad possibilities it offers, not only to architects and their clients, but also to architecture critics and historians.

Abstract

Wood is usually perceived as a "traditional" material. However, the properties of this material have now for some time made it possible to design free shapes and highly complex structures. Today, the wood laboratory of the EPF Lausanne, which was originally founded by Julius Natterer, is testing the production of origami structures, ribbed shells, fabric structures and curved panels under the guidance of Professor Weinand using digital calculation and computer-aided processing methods. The research results are tested in prototypes, which demonstrate the potential applications in large-scale timber buildings. By exploring the hitherto unused potential of wood as a construction material, this book provides an exciting and inspiring outlook on a new generation of timber buildings.
