中文摘要 鑑於數位設計和先進的製造技術,木材構造,尤其是互卡,已重新成為當代建築領域的焦點。大多數關於互卡結構的研究都集中在木板的卡榫形式上,和關注於線性木材單元的互卡接頭的設計實驗。在這種情況下,這項研究對實現三米高的互卡木構造涼亭、大規模製造提出了挑戰。



英文摘要 In the light of digital design and advanced fabrication technologies, wood tectonics, especially interlocking joints, have regained focus in the contemporary architectural realm. Most of the researches on interlocking joints focus on joint geometries for timber plates. Meanwhile, there has been attention to the design experiments of interlocking joints for linear timber elements. In this context, this research challenges mass customization of interlocking joints with the realization of a timber pavilion at a three-meter height.

In order to reinterpret traditional wood tectonics, this paper defines key features of tectonics: pattern, interlocking joint, and articulation. This research rethinks the meaning and the role of traditional patterns as new diagrams of spatial communication. In other words, it suggests that patterns could be practical means to revitalize new tectonics that can synthesize built environment, culture, and advanced technology.

Based on the researches on patterns, it proceeds to study tectonic articulation that unite articulated elements with the whole work by means of an interlocking joint. It could define the possibilities of building facades as articulate when they selectively conceal and reveal their constitution, allowing the expression of something beyond their construction.

All earlier studies considered, the full scale 1:1 model has been realized for all the 260 timber elements and 812 notches with a CNC machine. The particlized timber elements give complex spatial articulation in the synthesis of geometric patterns, interlocking joints, and advanced fabrication technologies. It hints that articulation can provide useful sources and ideas for expressing specificities of place and materializing into a physical form of architecture.
