An interview series to unravel the essence of the IntCDC projects, meet the researchers behind these projects and understand their work routines and passion for wood.
For our second interview as part of the timber plausch series, we got the chance to chat with Oliver Bucklin. Oliver is part of the Cluster of Excellence – Integrative Design and Construction for Architecture (IntCDC) at the University of Stuttgart. His work revolves around mono-material solid-timber construction (AP 15). During a visit to the digitize wood office, he surprised us with his skills in using the balance board.
