Welcome to the London Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city, brought to you by New London Architecture.
'Forest of Fabrication – dRMM: pioneers of timber architecture' is a public exhibition at the Building Centre, showing from 8 February until 17 May 2019.
Mon – Fri: 9.00am – 6.00pm
Sat: 10.00am – 5.00pm
The Building Centre and dRMM present engineered timber as a defining material of 21st Century architecture.
Forest of Fabrication demonstrates the possibilities of modern timber construction through the lens of Stirling Prize-winning architectural practice dRMM. The exhibition features twenty-four critically acclaimed projects that have pushed design boundaries through their exploration of the opportunities and challenges of timber structures. Forest of Fabrication will celebrate the capabilities of engineered timber; from concept to construction.
Featuring international projects and designers, the associated event programme will showcase the technologies enabling quicker off-site fabrication methods, analyse the commercial argument for cross laminated timber and celebrate the craft and beauty of exposed timber in contemporary architecture.
