Quick Overview

 

Details

Selecting the optimal materials for the task, in combination with traditional construction methods and elements prefabricated off site, plays an increasingly important role in the work processes. Examples we’ve selected include: a Swiss visitor centre with a rammed-earth exterior shell reinforced by a simple wood construction; a company headquarters in western Austria with concrete decks bolted to wood beams; a new departmental building in Oxford that combines a wood structure with a stainless-steel skin; and the structural design of a research pavilion, inspired by the water spider, which employs fibre-based composites.
