Timber Panels | Landesgartenschau Exhibition Hall by ICD/ITKE/IIGS University of Stuttgart
University of Stuttgart, Germany
The Landesgartenschau Exhibition Hall is a remarkable example of the use of plywood plates as structural material. The small pavilion is built with 243 50mm thick beech plywood plates, designed with the aid of computational technology. The use of a dome-like shape, together with computer simulations helped the team to reduce the amount of material to just 12m3 of plywood!
