Abstract

This paper considers the means and methods by which the complex natural properties and forms of trees can be deployed in the construction of buildings. The authors consider the structural and aesthetic potential of so-called whole timber elements in relation to processes of design, fabrication, and assembly. Tracking the development of experimental building projects, two case-studies are presented in detail, and particular attention is given to methods of selection, harvesting, processing, modelling, transport, and prefabrication.
