Collaboration between Columbia University and Olu University, coordinated by Philip Anzalone and Rainer Mahlamaki.
The project combines state-of-the-art computer-aided manufacturing methods as well as tranditional wood-working techniques. A basic mortise and tenon joint was utilized for almost every connection. Each beam either receives of abuts to four other beams creating a highly stable weave pattern. The use of CNC fabrication resulted in extremely high tolerance, allowing the entire structure to work in compression with no glue, and minimal screws.
