Wood – More than Wood
Wood, A Sentiment and Technology from Nature_Aldo Vanini

Wood naturally incorporates a sophisticated ‘biotechnology’ that allows you to follow the strength lines of the applied loads while maintaining the lightness and slimness of the construction elements. These structural features are combined with excellent aesthetics and physical-technical qualities making it a first-rate constructive material, that comes in a wide variety of color, texture, and grain. Wood, however, is much more than that. It was the first material available to man, along with stone, and since then has accumulated meanings which are still recognized today by architectural cultures all over the world. These cultures have established an almost sentimental relationship of trust and confidence with wood, both when used according to traditional patterns as well as in contemporary forms and design experiments. The examples shown demonstrate the potential of wood in a wide range of applications and contexts, always allowing for optimal environmental integration.

More than luxury, building large housing spaces in urban areas today means a large consumption of resources — financial, material, environmental, etc. A contemporary urban lifestyle, more mobile and transitory, demands thinking about new strategies for housing, where the concept of temporary or short-term occupation is prominent. Building small housing spaces is a solution that has already been adopted for a few decades now by some cities with high urbanization rates or high population density (and sometimes taken to an extreme), such as Hong Kong or Tokyo. At the base of this choice are essentially the lack of space, economic strategies and functional perspectives.
The global fast expansion of urban areas and new social needs of the urban population, turn this into a discussion of the present. Flexibility, easy to adapt (and to adapt to), simplicity or informality, are some of the requirements to the architectural production when demanding for smaller and more practical dwelling spaces. Balancing need and will, to build small spaces for housing today could be a wise answer.
