Ghost Tree


Total Floor Area



This block week course was focused on 3D Scanning, Bricolage, Digital Fabrication, Embodied Information, Forestry, and Timber Framing. Using Rhino 7 and deploying 3D scanning and computational design tools to develop a system of building that is both unusual and efficient. Our group undertook a study of the old repurposed wood to study tree rings and understanding how different pieces of the scrap timber relate to one another and relate to the overall structure and story of a tree. The project showcases the “ghost tree” of these individual pieces of timber. Using software to develop typical tree rings to laser cut an acrylic sheet that aligns with the rings of our chosen pieces of timber.
