Confidential Reporting on Safer Structures
This month we highlight a report raising concerns about the fire safety of multistorey buildings comprising cross-laminated timber structures and the risk of collapse in the event of an uncontrolled fire.
This paper describes the design, fabrication and erection of the MultiPly timber pavilion, which was made from the first cross-laminated timber to be manufactured at volume in the UK.
In 2018, BuroHappold Engineering and Studio X of the Hochschule Anhalt Graduate School of Architecture in Dessau, Germany, collaborated on the design and construction of the Hornet's Nest, a parametrically designed, temporary, timber pavilion assembled without the use of mechanical connections.
