ARC 6841 Sustainable Design Project

Wen-Shao was asked by the module leader, Dr. Sally Shahzad, to organise a workshop on timber design so the students can have some hand-on experiences and understand the nature or wood. This is a one-day workshop, in the morning was the lecture to the students to understand the nature of wood and how they are different from different construction materials, the students were then briefed on the project they are assigned for. Following that is a two hours group work on design before go to the material workshop to make the model. In this workshop, the students can explore different types of timber products, such as plywood, sawn timber and even balsa.
