The Liège Expo project is an exhibition hall whose structure is made entirely from round wood.
The proposed trusses are designed with raw wood, previously selected and scanned. This project presents a brand-new contemporary construction method, that takes advantage of the static properties of round wood, and is made possible by contemporary digital tools.
