Completed in research courses led by Oliver Neumann and myself, these projects are designed and then built on site by students. The projects are fabricated with a Hundegger which does 3 dimensional CAD controlled cuts to create exact jointing of timber elements to each other. Tolerances on the timber are mm (not so on the foundations on site!).
