Structural Innovation and Form Expression for New-Type Large-Span Timber Building
Promoted by modern material and construction technology, various ingenious structural forms are created with wide use of glued-laminated timber in large-span building. On the analysis of some classical cases for large-span timber structure, this paper expounds the design thoughts and technical features of employing structure as the main body of building space form and presents the idea of integrating large-span timber structural innovation with the spatial forms.
