The WOODSTOCK pavilion is being presented for the first time at the Woodrise 2017 exhibition, during the Agora biennale of architecture, planning and design in Bordeaux.
This pavilion offers a history of construction – our history. Since height no longer places any particular limits on wood buildings, we decided to go back to basics – to the resource itself. And what could be simpler than a model using the most common frame section dimensions? When we drew up our plans, our intention was not to create a masterpiece or a traditional framework. By providing a descriptive exploded view, the pavilion explores the possibilities of wood, and compares European tools with their Far Eastern counterparts, showcases our jointing and demonstrates how wood is transformed by construction.
