The winning designs of CO2nnect, TRADA’s 2017 Student Design Competition, can be viewed on TRADA’s stand, T260, at Timber Expo. First prize went to a team from the University of Edinburgh, which scooped £2000 for ‘Gateway’, an innovative modular design that uses a series of reconfigurable hexagonal shapes.
TRADA’s latest book, Cross-Laminated Timber: Design and Performance, a definitive guide to CLT, will be available to purchase, and there is a discount of £5 for all purchases at the show. Also available will be a diverse range of free Wood Information Sheets, Case Studies and Learning Resources, covering all aspects of timber design and build.
‘Entwined’, a ground-breaking timber pavilion, is on display on stand T260. Designed by students from the Emergent Technologies and Design Programme at the Architectural Association School of Architecture and co-ordinated by TRADA and sponsored by Hanson Plywood, this stunning creation derives from extensive research on plywood composite material systems, focused on the integration of doubly curved plywood forms and tensile cables.
TRADA’s technical team of timber experts will be on hand to advise on timber-related queries and products, and visitors are welcome to drop by or make appointments in advance. Email: [email protected]
Attendees to the Timber Focus Theatre can claim their CPD points by registering for their certificate at stand T150.
