Call For Papers

The editorial proposal concerns digital representation strategies able to change the future of wooden architectures, by combining tradition and innovation.
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.
Authors are invited to submit their contributions, initially by an abstract, in English, which must contain:
• Title and subtitle
• Author and affiliate
• Themes and keywords (max 5)
• Text (min 500 words, max 2000 words)
• An image 300 dpi
It is suggested to promote successful experiences, ongoing projects with innovative ideas and ideas in the field of wood construction, advanced digital modeling solutions, original technical/scientific work and innovative applications.
The contributions submitted will be evaluated by a panel of experts and the evaluation criteria will consider both the features of the proposed intervention and the originality of the topic being dealt with.
When the authors of the contribution are more than one, when possible, the contribution of each author will be explicit.
