The arched roof was digitally fabricated from a whole bunch of items of timber that had been CNC minimize.

Because the roof timbers are seen from the within, and to scale back confusion on web site, the studio aimed to design a construction that seems easy.

“Simplicity and effectivity had been achieved by way of the digital design and digital manufacturing of the parts that create this construction,” defined Boano.

“Though this digitally fabricated timber construction consists of a whole bunch of elements, the logic and technique for the meeting are quite simple, with many items having similar geometries it could have been not possible for the meeting workforce to get confused concerning the location of every ingredient.”
