According to a UN study, 68% of the world population is predicted to live in urban areas by 2050, Denser cities lead to vertical planning in order to user space efficiently, although we must do it susnainiably.
Our proposal for Open Source Wood Challenge for EASA 2020 is an multi story wooden module school.
Educational building should not be left to the outskirts of cities. Integrating school and faculty buildings into the city grid prevents segregated city plans.
The idea is to build a school that consists of standard sized modules ( 3,5x7x3,5m). This proportion and size are derived from the common sclassroom size as well as possible module gauge due to tansportation truck maximum capasities. Small classroom consists of 2 modules. Large classroom consists of 3 modules. This creates a 3,5x7m grid system plan. The construction is many from lvl elements. Redwoodl timber studs are used in places which the module does not require as much support.
The bulding has a concrete stareway for safe evacuation and rigid structure of the building core.
Through the corridors run non processed colmuns. The aim is to save energy by using non processed timber were possible as this saves energy and lowers the carbon footprint of the building.
The building is 8 stories high. All modules are connected together by 2 outer master frames which brace the construction from lateral loads. One grand frame connects together 4 stories of floors. The outer frame consists of diagonals and which is held together with joints and shrews. The external frame gives the building durability and protection against external loads. The modules are connected to the frame with screws from the horizontal external beam and module flooring beam.
In mute walls there is an extra 200mm layer of insulation (covered with brether membrane) between the module and outer frame.The outer construction frame is protected from the outdoors with glazing. Fully open glass facade system links to the outer frame.
Glass on top of the outer frame creates a double facade effect. Some areas are covered with double glass others have glass on top of the insulation and air gap.

Building uses recyclable and low carbon foortprint materials such as timber and steel. Were possible low proccessed timber is used. Educational buildings should lead the way and provide an example of low carbon footprint buildings which also come off friendly.
In the fabrication of concrete stareway low co2 emission cement should .
The space is planned rationally. The room programme is adaptable to any demand. Rooms can be used multifunctionally. Modules are light weight and easily transferable
