Digital Timber Session at RCA 2018

TU Kaiserslautern, 27.-28.9.2018 –  As part of the DFG funded RCA2018 | International Conference on cross-disciplinary research in architecture, the DTC group will chair a Paper Session on Digital Timber Construction. This session is focused on innovative timber construction using digital methods for their design, analysis and fabrication. Contributions are invited both from research and practice, across the disciplines of architecture, engineering and computer science. Topics range from design concepts, over innovative joining solutions, software developments, fabrication tools and techniques, to prototypes and built structures. Located at one of Europes largest forests, the faculty of architecture at TU Kaiserslautern and its Science T-Lab research group are specialised in timber construction, including a new 5-axis CNC center which has opened in 2018.

Accepted papers will be published in a scientific publication, together with articles from our keynote speakers. Please find more information on the event at the RCA2018 website.

Submission for Abstracts open until 1.6.
