I’m happy to announce that the Landesgartenschau Exhibition Hall was finished in May.

The Exhibition Hall is a prototype building and a showcase for the current developments in computational design and robotic fabrication in architecture. Funded by the European Union and the state of Baden-Württemberg, the building is the first to have its primary structure entirely made of robotically prefabricated beech plywood plates. The newly developed timber construction offers not only innovative architectural possibilities; it is also highly resource efficient, with the load bearing plate structure being just 50mm thin. This is made possible through integrative computational design, simulation, fabrication and surveying methods.
