Wooden Architecture and Pattern Books Workshop, Rauland and Ramme, Norway

16 - 23 August 2008 
Funding framework: ESUA

Based on the ESUA curriculum and training methodology hypothesis, the 5th ESUA test module focused on the problems and possibilities in real-life situations by studying ongoing development and building projects in Norway, using wood as a sustainable building material. 

The partners visited and made interviews at selected projects ranging from single buildings to urban areas, and explored both new and traditional wood technologies. Based on these experiences, students and partners participated in a workshop to test participation in a hands-on building process as a teaching method in future educational programs based on the ESUA curriculum. The short course included both workshop training and classroom teaching, and included participants from the building industry, practicing architects, urban designers and students from the partners' network. The short course was held in collaboration with the NGO Stiftelsen Byens Fornyelse and the local construction company Rauland Aktivitets Service.
