BUGA Wood Pavilion
by University of Stuttgart

University of Stuttgart

Produced by University of Stuttgart, BUGA Wood Pavilion celebrates a new approach to digital timber construction.

Its segmented wood-shell structure is based on biological principles found in the plate skeleton of sea urchins and uses a minimum amount of material.

An accurate robotic fabrication process has ensured that all segments fit together with sub-millimetre precision and can be easily assembled and disassembled like a three-dimensional puzzle.

The wooden roof spans 30 meters over one of BUGA’s main event and concert venues, generating a unique architectural space.

This project has been longlisted in the small building category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
