Abstract

Currently we can see many instances, both new and old, where the roof and roof structure dominates the design concept and becomes an important part of the internal space of a building. Wooden structures in these cases directly define the architectural form and shape of the building. It is therefore a major component of architecture, which includes newly created spaces and is an essential defining element of the interior. To a large extent this influences the parameters defining the volume of space i.e. its form. Wooden roof structures, however, find application in many different positions and relations to the total volume of the construction, exterior and interior,... I will attempt to define the criteria under which wooden beams form an integral part of the architectural concept. And we challenge the facts on specific examples.
