TIMBER? This ASK studio will engage timber as modern design materiality of choice. Why timber? Can design and fabrication of the contemporary wood architecture be informed by the close examination of traditional wood building culture of the region? Those are among the key questions. For now they remain rhetorical, as it is your design that has to provide the answer. Lessons from past and design visions for future are to be considered as the part of „glocalization” discourse. Studio works is to be grounded in the rigorous design research, site visits and examination of contemporary design precedents. Use of CNC wood router in design modeling is expected as is creative engagement of engineered timber, information and eco technology. Studio architectural projects are to be situated in Hucuły region of Ukraine in East Carpathia mountains.
