Advanced Timber Construction, using digital fabrication and robotic assemblies

Using renewable resources: Sustainable timber construction aims to develop optimized design solutions through including the recent advancements in digital fabrication, robotic assembly, material science, and structural mechanics. Toward this end, IBOIS at EPFL aims to develop a next generation of timber construction using a wide range of timber products from natural wood resources such as tree trucks to engineered products such as Laminated Veneer Lumbers. Combing the state of the art in digital architecture, robotic science, and structural engineering, spatial non-standard timber structures are developed using algorithmic geometry processing, and their performance are evaluated using novel mechanical models. The primary aim is to construct timber structures through their form/ geometry and without using additional connectors such as screws, nails, fasteners, and adhesives.
