    Overview

    • Presents recent research findings from the ETH Lausanne wood construction laboratory
    • Showcases prototypes developed by an interdisciplinary team of structural engineers, architects, mathematicians, and IT specialists

    Aims and Scope

    Wood is usually perceived as a traditional material. However, its properties make it possible to design complex origami-, ribbed-, and fabric structures. The wood laboratory of the EPF Lausanne is testing the research results in prototypes, which demonstrate the potential applications in large-scale timber buildings. By exploring the unused potential of wood, this book provides an inspiring outlook on a new generation of timber buildings.
