Concept { Design Whole from Part }
In Japan, we have developed the wood joint technology* without metal hardware for sustainable wooden architecture and city. At present, joints due to hardware are common, because machining simplicity and structural strength are easy to quantify. But It is sustainable and rational to renovate updating only damaged places without breaking the old wooden structures in the future. Let’s say metabolizing structure. So come again to learn from traditional technology in new meaning.
In this workshop, from this point of view, learn the basics about traditional wooden joints and fittings, and devise wooden joints using this to create models. Then design and present the shelter covered by the framework applying this joint in 3D-structural ways.
