Landesgartenschau Exhibition Hall

The Landesgartenschau Exhibition Hall in Schwäbisch Gmünd, the demonstrator building of our collaborative research and development project "Robotics in Timber Construction", has received the Wilhelm-Klauditz Award for Wood Research and Environmental Protection awarded by the International Association for Technical Timber Queries (iVTH).
The jury commended "the exceptional work, which is particularly convincing through its demonstrator, the construction of the Landesgartenschau Exhibiton Hall. In addition, the project is a beautiful example for the collaboration of multiple disciplines advancing timber as a construction material. The research has the potential to not only manifest itself in follow-up projects but also to influence future construction."
"The work is a role model for the timber industry and construction. It is a successful example for the pioneering transfer of novel technologies in timber material applications through multi-disciplinary research."

Congratulations to the team and our supporters!
