Architectural quality, design for circularity and design variation in wood façade systems

Published: 23 April 2021

The thesis will as a point of departure use precious research on wood facade systems (made together with RISE, LTU and wood building industry in the far north).

The doctoral research examines technical and architectural quality issues and assessment of aesthetics with focus on the connections between design, circularity, adaptability and reusability of the components by developing a digitized plat form. The aim is to investigate how knowledge and verification of these issues can be used in the development of future wooden building systems suitable for renovation and new construction with focus on the northern parts of Sweden.

Partners and financing

Funding for the project comes from Energimynigheten, E2B2. Partners in the project is: RISE, LTU, SCA, Hedlunda Industrier, Equator Arkitektkontor and Kiruna Bostäder AB.
