In response to Open Source Wood Initiative EASA 2020 Challenge, we present T-LAB: Timber Laboratory for Co-operative Living.
The T-Lab project proposes a modular multi-story housing concept using the elements and modules available at opensourcewood.com. The project responds to the challenges of urbanization and increasing the densification of city structures through an architectural, social, and environmental lens. The main material of the building is wood, specifically Metsä Wood's Kerto LVL. The proposal is comprised of a system of modules and building components that are ideal for offsite construction and are easily transferable to the construction site.
The project is a viable alternative to traditional housing, proposing a cooperative building model whereby benefits of practicality and efficiency are carried through to the end-user.
