Wood and Everything After


Presentation titled ‘Building with the Inherent Properties of Trees’ delivered to a symposium at Miami School of Architecture. Joined in conversation by Andrew Freer (Rural Studio) and Jan Knippers (ITKE).


The shape of the wood buildings we erect have a consequential impact on the form of the world’s forests. Since 1985 the AA’s Hooke Park campus – a unique site merging camp, hi-tech workshop and design studio within a working forest – has been host to a line of projects which challenge the ways we usually make buildings with trees. These ideas will be presented through the AA Design + Make program’s pivotal ‘Tree Fork Truss’ project.
