Wood Joints - Expression of Tectonic Culture
Material Hub ETH Zurich
May 2019 - September 2019
Wood joints reflect the different building cultures in timber construction. They are shaped by climate and material, but also by aesthetic values.
An exhibition of the material collection in the Department of Architecture at ETH Zurich shows traditional, pure wood connections from Europe and the Anglo-Saxon area, as well as from China and Japan. It also illustrates how wood joints are used in current and future construction projects.
In October 2019 the exhibition went to ZHAW Winterthur.
Further planned events are:
November 2020 at the Hochschule Lucerne
Spring 2021 at the University Liechtenstein
Autumn 2021 at the USI Mendrisio
