Practical Modules: Timber Frame

Part of a series of short videos made by a previous volunteer at CAT showing some of the materials and techniques studied during the practical modules on the Professional Diploma in Architecture: Advanced Environmental and Energy Studies courses and the MSc Sustainability and Adaptation (and the built environment) course at CAT.

The video shows students creating rigid structures with timber frame during a practical. It includes:

generating designs
bending and clamping the timber
measuring and cutting the timber
using wooden pegs
testing the structures
