Development of a Mono-Material Wood Wall System: Activating Digitally Fabricated Air Cavities for High-Performance Solid Timber Construction

The Mono-Material Wood Wall (MMWW) is a solid timber construction system combining traditional timber joinery techniques with computational automation and computer numerical controlled (CNC) fabrication to create a building envelope that provides enclosure, structure, and thermal insulation (Figure 1). In 2015, researchers from the University of Stuttgart’s Institute for Computational Design (ICD) and the Jade University of Applied Sciences came together to develop a complete design-to-construction system that creates high-performance, contemporary building envelopes using sustainable solid wood material (Figures 2, 3, 4).
