Ruled surfaces in Timber

Alex de Rijke founder-director of the London-based agency dRMM Studio and the professor at the TU Delft will host a workshop on Ruled surfaces in Timber. In this hands-on workshop session, participants will delve into the fascinating world of ruled surfaces, discovering how standard pieces of wood can be transformed into extraordinary, non-standard forms. Through a combination of theoretical exploration and practical application, attendees will gain insights into the principles behind ruled surfaces and their application in Bio Build design.

This workshop is ideal for architects, designers, engineers, and anyone interested in exploring the intersection of design, craftsmanship, and sustainability.


Join us for an immersive experience and unleash your creativity with timber!
