The project Nabucco, at Lausanne Cathedral, presents an innovative scenography entirely in wood, which can be assembled and disassembled without special tools and is realized thanks to a technological transfer of snap-fit joints, an innovative wood-wood connection, developed at the Laboratory for Timber Constructions, EPFL.
The spiral, discretized in 26 boxes made from assembled wooden panels, symbolizes the rise to power, arrogance, and tensions of the human condition.
