Abstract

The onset of digital technology has seen the embracing on nonstandard design techniques that use standardised materials, typified by the use of milled plywood. Jonathan Enns describes a project that he has developed at Princeton seeking to harness the irregular and materially complex nature of the innate geometry in timber in such as way as to directly characterise the final design.
