FIRST INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON TIMBER 2020

TECHNOLOGY AND PROJECT

From 7-8 of February 2020

Auditorium of the School of Architecture – CESUGA
A Coruña

RESERVATION CLOSED

XERA (Galician Forestry Industry Agency) , in collaboration with the CESUGA School of Architecture, is organising the First International Conference on Timber 2020, with the tag line, TECHNOLOGY AND PROJECT. The Conference will be held at the headquarters of the CESUGA in A Coruña, in three sessions, corresponding to three scales of approaching timber, from 7-8 of February.

In the hall of the building there will be an EXHIBITION of selected images of the woodwork of speakers and teachers of CESUGA.

The focus is on TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION and its relationship with PROJECT, understanding the latter as rational search for intelligent, coherent, logical solutions, highlighting issues of a biological, ecological and anthropological nature, as a guarantee of a more sustainable “way of living”. In this context, TIMBER clearly emerges, as a vital raw material on the path towards a bio-economic model. A dual focus is sought, both theoretical and practical, from three interlinked scalers, TERRITORY, ARCHITECTURE, FURNITURE.

In an initial session, based on green urban planning, the potential of timber on a territorial scale, through sustainable forest management, planning and management, will be analysed and taken into account. Models for sustainable development, committed to the cultural and ecological values of the territory, and seeking a balance between technological innovation and tradition will be presented. Also of interest, in parallel, is the diagnosis of the forestry sector in Galicia; species, structure, landscape, analysis tools, research projects, as well as actions on border areas, boundaries.

From the emergence of new construction systems, resulting from continuous improvement and technological invention, arises the need to review the tectonic foundations, leading to the development of intelligent adaptation strategies, which will not lose sight of the naturalness, wisdom and rationality of traditional systems. In this regard, a second session will address timber architecture, of enormous sensitivity, coherence and conceptual clarity. Reflection on architectural expression, the formal criteria in the use of timber in construction, the Passivhaus standard and bio-construction is encouraged.

In the third session, timber on a small scale, visions and experiences related to current design and manufacturing processes will be contrasted, analysing the influence of the new technologies, CAD-CAM-Robotics, mass production process, and the dialogue between industrial innovation and craftsmanship.
