SUPERONDA TALKS
WHOLE WOOD


The SUPERONDA lecture series in autumn 2022 is organized with the laboratory IBOIS. It will focus on our constructive choices, mostly dictated by the dynamics of supply and demand of raw materials, as well as by the resulting international trade flows. This critical analysis of innovation will allow us to discuss the evolution of mentalities that aspire to give a new impulse within the wood construction, privileging the local circular economy.

SUPERONDA TALK N°2
MARIO RINKE


Monday 3 November 2022, 6 p.m.
Foyer SG, SG building, Place Ada Lovelace, EPFL 

For this SUPERONDA lecture series, Mario Rinke will discuss the possibilities of wood construction and how it is based on constructive determinism. In doing so, he will discuss how wood was first able to meet the needs of many situations, before being replaced by other building materials. The close entanglement of modern wood and other industrial materials raises the question of where its place would be in a sustainable, circular and human architecture. What can and should we demand from wood construction beyond its versatile use?

The lecture is also broadcast live on Zoom.
