Timber Hub Pavilion on exhibition in Barcelona

News Item

An innovative pavilion design project is Finalist in an international competition and exhibition being held in October at Form and Force 2019, Barcelona.

This is part of a research project in the Future Timber Hub that aims to minimise waste timber through an innovative design process entitled 'inventory constrained design'.  Researchers have coupled this with a 'funicular modelling' process that was used by Catalan Architect Antoni Gaudí over a century ago. The team includes University of Queensland researchers, students and graduates from the Schools of Architecture and Civil Engineering including Kim Baber, Joe Gattas, Daniel Foote and Harry McCollough, and research partners from Swinburne University of Technology, Jane Burry and Canhui Chen. It has been fabricated with the support of the Future Timber Hub Industry Partner, Hyne Timber.

Winners announced soon. We will keep you updated.
