Computer Design and Digital Manufacturing of Folded Architectural Structures Composed of Wood Panels [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
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. Laminated timber panels associated with "digital production line" approach have opened up new perspectives for the building industry in creating prefabricated wooden structures. This article provides a characterization of the digital chain associated to the development of non-standard folded structures which consist of wood panels by way of a full-scale experimental pavilion. The purpose is the study of architectural design process from parametric modeling (through CNC machining) and assembly operations to production. Towards the completion of the pavilion, a number of analytical experiments have been performed.
