Branching Out: pushing to boundaries of timber construction
Xylotek is part of an online roundtable organised by IAAC Barcelona’s Master of Advanced Architecture programme:
…the tools for processing, designing, engineering and modelling timber have evolved dramatically, giving rise to a new architectural vocabulary. In parallel, a new interest in traditional craft is developing against this contemporary technological background.
The Branching Out roundtable takes these trends as a starting point to discuss novel, innovative and unusual applications of timber, bringing together diverse perspectives of timber innovators – architects, engineers, educators and researchers – that are pushing the boundaries of timber construction.
