Advancing Wood Architecture Symposium
Schaumainkai 43, 60596 Frankfurt am Main, Germany, Frankfurt am Main, Germany
In light of environmental challenges architecture is facing, wood is no longer regarded as outmoded, nostalgic, and rooted in the past, but increasingly recognized as one of the most promising building materials for the future. Recent years have seen unprecedented innovation of new technologies for advancing wood architecture. The Advancing Wood Architecture symposium will offer a comprehensive overview of the new architectural possibilities that are enabled by cutting-edge computational technologies in wood construction. It will provide both an overarching architectural understanding and in-depth technological information through built projects and works of four leading design research groups in Europe. It will showcase the latest technological developments in design computation, simulation and digital fabrication together with an architectural perspective, offering an outlook towards novel spatial, constructional, and fabricational opportunities of a material with unrivalled ecological virtues. We are looking forward to welcoming you on this extraordinary event. The Symposium and all presentations will be held in English.
