summary The use of digital design and fabrication technology for the integration of joints into timber plate structures has been the subject of recent research in the field of architectural geometry. While most of research has been focused on joint geometries, assembly sequences, and the fabrication of smaller prototypes, there have been few implementations in buildings. This paper illustrates the challenges for such a process and offers our solutions for implementing it at a building scale through the example of a theater hall built from cross-laminated timber plates. The building achieves its column-free span of 20 meters with a plate thickness of only 45 mm through a form-active lightweight structure system. It combines prismatic and antiprismatic folded surfaces and a double-layered cross-section with integrated thermal insulation.
