Abstract.  The  non-standard  approach,  widely  discussed  in  the  past years  as  Architecture  progressively  uses  alternative  design  methods different  from  the  Euclidean  paradigm,  has  allowed  architects  to transform  the  way  architecture  is  conceived  and  materialized.  Such evolution  uses  computer-aided  design  along  with  automation  in production  to  originate  the  environment  for  the  aided  architectural conception  field  in  which  we  present  a  method,  in  its  early development  stage,  intended  to  create  non-standard  walls  and envelopes based on cellular patterns using wood as base material. We present the results obtained from modeling and building two full-scale prototypes of non-standard wooden walls. 
 
Keywords.  Non-standard  walls;  parametric  modeling;  CNC fabrication; cellular structures; wood construction. 

Achievement of a folded structure composed of wood panels

The  research  presented  in  this  paper  revolves  around  the experimental  development  of  the  morpho-structural  potential  of  folded architectural structures made of wood. The aims are to develop an innovative system for timber used in sustainable construction and to increase the inventory of wood architectural tectonics. First, this article provides a characterization of the  digital  chain  associated  to  the  development  of  non-standard  folded structures consisting of wood panels. The purpose is to study the architectural design  process  from  parametric  modeling  (through  CNC  machining)  and assembly operations to production by way of a full-scale experimental pavilion. Secondly, a number of analytical experiments have been performed towards the completion of the pavilion, in order to validate the design process. 
 
Keywords: Architecture, folded structure, robotic fabrication, computational design, parametric modeling, wood panels. 

 

  

Nanyo City Cultural Center in Yamagata prefecture is acknowledged as the largest wooden concert hall in the world by the Guinness world record.
The ha ll has floor space of 6,178.13 square meters with one hour fire proof wooden structure. It has 1 403 seats. It completed construction in last October and had several concerts since then.
Conditions of Guinness authorization are that the building is 100% wooden structure, seals are 1 403, music concerts be held more than four times a month and two witnesses of professional field.
Engineering professor Funaki and engineering professor Sato are two witness in construction and acoustic fields.


The Guinness world record certificate was officially given on January 21 at the hall.


The applicant of the certificate, president Kimura of Shelter Co., Ltd. commented that it is great pride that such building was built by technique developed in Yamagata and became the number one in the world. It shows promising vision and proves that local business men can achieve great things if one has courage and fighting spirit.
This is the first fire proof wooden large hall so it had more than 8,200 visitors and observers while it was under construction.

On Friday, March 20, 2015 invited the joinery center Northwestern Switzerland AG, briefly ANW, a to the open day.
The focus was the ultimate in industrial wood processing, the TW-Agil joinery.
