Modern design standards, fabrication techniques, and research allow pushing the envelope of timber design and achieving signature structures like the China Pavilion for the Milano World Expo 2015. The devil sometimes literally lies in the details, and great visions cannot materialize without careful review of the interplay of the most fundamental structural components, connections, and members. When profound design aligns with technical advances in engineering and fabrication, new sustainable opportunities can be showcased, an example for what a pavilion hopes to achieve as an educational facility.

This project is the result of cross-disciplinary design and construction collaboration with Studio Link-Arc,  Simpson Gumpertz & Heger, F&M Ingegneria, and Stratex SpA.
