WOOD ARCHITECTURE AND PATTERN BOOKS.
 
NORWAY, 16-23 AUGUST 2008
 
Based on the ESUA curriculum and training methodology hypothesis, this test module focused on the problems and possibilities in real-life situations by studying ongoing development and building projects in Norway, using  wood as a sustainable building material.

 

The partners visited and made interviews at selected projects ranging from single buildings to urban areas, and explored both new and traditional wood technologies.
 
Based on these experiences, students and  partners participated in a workshop to test participation in a hands-on building process as a teaching method in future educational programs  based on the ESUA curriculum.

 

The short course included both workshop training and classroom teaching, and included participants from the building industry, practicing architects, urban designers and  students from the partners'  network. The short course was held in collaboration with the NGO Stiftelsen Byens Fornyelse and the local construction company  Rauland Aktivitets Service.
