Friday 15 February, 1.15pm - 1.45pm
Forest of Fabrication is an exhibition in collaboration between the Building Centre and Stirling Prize-winning practice dRMM, presenting engineered timber as a defining material of 21st Century architecture.
Raphael Villiermet, dRMM Associate and Forest of Fabrication co-curator, gave a guided tour of the exhibition focusing around the studio’s use of models as an integral part of the design process, with emphasis on stacked structures and urban intensification strategies. Projects featured included WorkStack, a new typology for light-industrial workspace and Walliscote Place, a 14-storey residential CLT tower in Weston-super-Mare.
This event is part of the Forest of Fabrication exhibition and events programme, curated by the Building Centre exhibitions team and dRMM, and supported by The Built Environment Trust.
