Summary note
  • Advances in the materials and the digitalization of architecture bring about new methods in design and construction. Whereas traditional timber construction consists of pre-cut and pre-assembled timber sections, modern timber buildings today consist of elaborate wood-based materials. Owing to their flexibility and good properties in terms of building physics and ecology, these wood-based materials are ideal for computer-aided building component production. Fifteen case examples from research, teaching, and practical applications provide inspiring insights into the potential of formable wood-based materials and digital design: Woven Wood, Wood Foam, Living Wood and Organic Joints, Timber Joints for Robotic Building Processes, Efficiencies of Wood, Designing with Tree Form.
  • Fortschritte im Materialangebot und die Digitalisierung in der Architektur bringen neue Methoden in Entwurf und Baupraxis hervor. Während Holzkonstruktionen traditionell aus zugeschnittenem, maximal in Verbund gefügtem Holz bestanden, werden moderne Holzbauten aus elaborierteren Holzwerkstoffen gefertigt. Gerade diese Holzwerkstoffe sind aufgrund ihrer Flexibilität und ihrer guten bauphysikalischen und ökologischen Eigenschaften für computergestützte Bauteilproduktion prädestiniert. 15 Fallbeispiele aus Praxis, Lehre und Forschung liefern inspirierende Einblicke in das Potenzial formbarer Holzwerkstoffe und digitaler Entwurfspraxis: Woven Wood, Wood Foam, Living Wood and Organic Joints, Timber Joints for Robotic Building Processes, Efficiencies of Wood, Designing with Tree Form.
