Students worked as a group in order to understand the potential and constraints that wood offers as the main building material for the XXIst century, but also where it comes from, and the vast traditions and craft passed from generation to generation. Simultaneously, they explored hands-on provisional solutions for wood building systems in our Mediterranean environment, by focusing on its challenges in this particular climatic and cultural context, amidst the current global climate and resources destruction frenzy, in order to contribute as architects to provide an urgent alternative to this war on nature scenario.
