Structures 2: Connections

This course examines the ways in which wood architecture handles long spans and complex connections, including wood to wood joints, wooden pegs or dowels, lashing wooden connectors, and wood to steel connections. The relationship between the full structural system and the precise detail is explored in structural terms through calculations and hands-on experimentation. The course also explores structural joints and connections through parametric modelling and drawing building details of complex wooden buildings. PREREQ: ARCH-2316EL (lec/lab 3) cr 3.
