Main Research Areas

The Institute of Advanced Timber Architecture and Engineering develops constructive, energetic and structural-physical aspects of modern timber construction. Our research and training concepts serve to highlight the role of wood as a construction material in high-performance hybrid constructions, as well as giving training in the technical skills necessary for these uses of timber.


Our main research areas include novel joints for interior and exterior nodes, as well as the use of round timber in modern engineered timber constructions. Further areas include timber-concrete hybrid construction, CAD/CAM concepts and the integration of parametric design tools in timber construction.
