The editorial proposal we intend to undertake concerns the digital representation strategies that can change the future of wooden architectures, by combining tradition and innovation. The title of the publication is Digital Wood Design. Innovative techniques of representation in architectural design.
Call for chapters is aimed to anyone who intends to bring innovation and experience in the wood construction field, related to the advanced digital modeling with a particular attention to the solutions associated with generative models and the dynamic value inherent the relation between knowing how to draw and how to build, a relation that finds in geometry its foundation. Although wood is one of the oldest construction materials, in the recent years many innovations have affected the production techniques and the design tools, and they have paved the way for new formal, aesthetic and structural solutions that can fill the application fields of this material. Lightness and eco-compatibility of features make this material a valuable alternative to materials that have characterized the recent architectural debate, offering the ability to build with sustainable, fully renewable and high-performance materials in energy and structural aspects, capable of complying with architectural solutions of great freedom. Thanks to the potential of computing, parametric design and digital manufacturing are decisively contributing to renew a spinneret which looks forward to driving the future of construction.
