Hosted by the University of British Columbia (UBC)’s Centre for Advanced Wood Processing (CAWP) and School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (SALA), this technical workshop on robotic fabrication was held October 13 – 17 for students and practicing architects to share knowledge and experience with wood design experts.
Using a state-of-the-art eight-axis industrial robotic work cell, participants put into practice the unique technical and conceptual foundations that underpin robotic milling in wood through the development and construction of the Wandering Wood Pavilion, a wooden sculptural bench installation.

Explore this study featuring 100 of the most significant buildings constructed from CLT in the United Kingdom over the past 15 years.
This facility showcases an example of hybrid construction in which glue-laminated beams and columns, cross-laminated timber panels, steel and concrete are combined for optimal structural performance, economy and visual effect.
Forest communities will see more jobs and opportunity from B.C.’s proactive adoption of building code changes that allow the safe construction of taller wood buildings.
The 2019 Wood Design Awards, hosted by Wood WORKS! BC, honours excellence in wood building and design.
Located in Surrey, B.C.’s fastest growing municipality, this facility with its dramatic suspended roof form is the first project to be completed on the ‘super block’ that is destined to become a regional campus of health, wellness and sports excellence.
People spend as much as 90 per cent of their time inside buildings, and for children, adolescents and an increasing number of young adults, most of this time is spent either at home or in school. Given this situation, the design of schools is of clear importance where wood plays a vital role.
