The Opening, ETH Zurich, 2008
Elective Course
During the project “The Opening” we continued our research on the integration of functional aspects of wood wall elements into the design and production process. The starting point for this semester was the conclusion that within complex, parametric systems the insertion of an opening afterwards would mostly destroy the intelligence embedded in such a system. Due to this fact the design task of this course was to set up a system for sill and lintel which forms the basis for the generation of the complete design of a wood wall.
