TIMBER [ˈtɪmbə(r)]: trees that are grown to be used in building or for making things
PLAUSCH [plaʊ̯ʃ]: german expression for ‘social gathering’ or ‘cheerful chat’
Timber Plausch is 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 first interview as part of the Timber Plausch series, we got the chance to chat with with Laura Kiesewetter and Dylan Wood. They are part of the Cluster of Excellence – Integrative Design and Construction for Architecture (IntCDC) at the University of Stuttgart. Their work revolves around self-shaping wood. They founded together Hylo Tech: As a design team they develop self-shaping furniture, high performance building components and adaptive systems. As part of the Timber Plausch series, we had the chance to ask them about the research project, their work processes and their passion for wood.
