Fabricate 2017 Pavilion

 

This research project conducted at the University of Queensland’s Centre for Future Timber Structures with Dr Joe Gattas, investigates a hybrid structure of plywood press-fit panels arranged in a geometry whereby the structure self-stabilizes under its own self weight. The plywood panels are¬†coated with a layer of FRP on the tensile faces, allowing a hybrid of timber and fibre materials to perform in unison. ¬† The project was one of 36 selected internationally from over 250 entries for inclusion at the Fabricate 2017 conference, and is published in the catalogue.
