Last week, students from the Academy of Architecture collaborated with students from Liechtenstein and Trondheim in a workshop focusing on the wood material. The purpose of the workshop is to become acquainted with different wood structures. During the week, contemporary and historic wooden bridges and towers from the region were explored, drawn and built in 1:5 scale in mixed teams.
Crafting Wood (2018-2020) is a European educational project of the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture, the University of Liechtenstein and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim. The project is supported by the Erasmus+ programme. We jointly study the tradition and innovation of wooden structures by means of research, excursions, workshops and studio projects at the three architecture schools.
