Largest timber structure in Asia underway
Friday 13 Aug 2021At over 800,000 sqft (75,000sqm), the new Tianfu Agriculture Expo will be the largest timber structure in Asia, and one of the largest timber structures in the world. Working closely with one of China's most famous architects, CuiKai, the structural design for this series of 5 vaults uses unique Vierendeel trusses to achieve clear spans of more than 115m and heights of 45m.
Stay tuned for more details - construction has begun, and in partnership with Hasslacher more than 3500m3 of Glulam has already been shipped to Chengdu!
As well as beautiful finished clips, take a behind the scenes look at the timber engineering, full-scale structural testing, and custom parametric geometry and structural analysis engine which enabled these freeform structures.
