Structures 2: Connections

Structures 2 examines the ways in which wood architecture handles long spans and complex connections. Wood to wood joints, wooden pegs or dowels, lashing wooden connectors, and wood to steel connections are ways that wood is used to create complex structural systems. The relationship between the full structural system and the precise detail is explored in structural terms through calculations and hands-on experimentation. Structural joints and connections are explored through parametric modelling and drawing building details of complex wooden buildings.
