title Integrated Solid Timber. A multi-requisite system for the computational design,fabrication, and construction of versatile building envelopes
source ACADIA // 2018: Recalibration. On imprecisionand infidelity. [Proceedings of the 38th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-0-692-17729-7] Mexico City, Mexico 18-20 October, 2018, pp. 424-433
summary The paper presents the development of a building system made from solid timber that fulfils the requirements of modern building skins while expanding the design possibilities through innovation in computational design and digital fabrication. Multiple strategies are employed to develop a versatile construction system that generates structure, enclosure and insulation while enabling a broad design space for contemporary architectural expression. The basic construction unit augments the comparatively high insulation values of solid timber by cutting longitudinal slits into beams, generating air chambers that further inhibit thermal conductivity. These units are further enhanced through a joinery system that uses advanced parametric modeling and computerized control to augment traditional joinery techniques. Prototypes of the system are tested at a building component level with digital models and physical laboratory tests. It is further evaluated in a demonstrator building to test development and further refine design, fabrication and assembly methods. Results are integrated into proposals for new methods of implementation. The results of the research thus far demonstrate the validity of the strategy, and continuing research will improve its viability as a building system.
