With climate change in mind, timber construction is the future! Building in wood is sustainable, efficient and lightweight – and has a lot of architectural qualities. Join this workshop and learn all about the material, its detailing and fabrication and how all this influences the planning process. We share our knowledge in an interactive practice-based manner and with our holistic approach we want to enable participants to develop in-depth knowledge and confidence to design innovative timber structures.

About the instructors

DESIGN TO PRODUCTION (D2P) is a Zurich based firm that focusses on three key services: digital planning, consultancy and software development. As pioneers of building information modelling, they close the process chain that links a construction idea to its digital fabrication.

For more than a decade they have enabled projects of high complexity to take flight and have supported clients, architects, engineers, planners and fabricators in reaching new heights of efficiency, safety and quality. What they have learned along the way: timber is digital! The majority of digital fabrication projects are made from wood, as it turns out that the supply chains in timber are more advanced than anywhere else.
