Abstract [en]

The authors present a logical outline for an innovative architectural stacking methodology based on three Swedish timber construction systems. They discuss the increased architectural–engineering quality, sustainable advantages, and cost effectiveness of those systems and their application in an exploration and a challenging of the limits of cross-laminated, panel-and-stud, and post-and-beam timber construction, as compared to traditional buildings. A comparison with the tallest timber residential building in the world, the Stadthaus precedent in east London, provides an appropriate quantitative background for evaluating the decisions made throughout the project, while references to Edward Glaeser's recent study, Triumph of the City, form the theoretical backdrop for a discourse on what potential benefits an adoption of the scheme on an urban scale could have. Particular emphasis is placed on finding methods for obtaining new, avant-garde architectural expressions to simultaneously widen and deepen the current narrow-andshallow canon of multi-storey timber buildings. The final outcome is presented both as diagrams of stacking methods and a full drawing set of the final building examples, with notations describing the structural and constructional applications of the building systems chosen. Furthermore, the paper covers a comprehensive account of how these new modular buildings sit within their architectural context, and how the formal logic underpinning them can be assimilated further and used as the point of departure for future studies.
