User-oriented Building Architecture through User Experience Design

The digital transformation requires a user-oriented approach for designing building architecture. This applies especially to service-demanding projects such as hotels, commercial premises, or offices. Within the terms of “agile”, “lean” and “beta testing” is concealed the idea of failing quickly in software development, in order to have speedy success. While architectural models, such as BIM, or rough physical mock-ups may be used for user testing, this concept may also be implemented for buildings. This empathy for the user perspective allows for the possibility of moments of elation while eliminating painful particulars.

The infinite variety of natural wood surface

A healthy forest is more than just wood and its use: It offers us people relaxation, nature experience and wilderness up close. The natural life cycle of growth, ageing and new beginnings is reflected in forests. Old trees create space for new growth. This is exactly what happens during veneer production: individual trees are removed at an advanced age. The forest closes this gap quickly and naturally. In his presentation, Rolf Loose-Leonhardt will not only report on sustainable forestry and the importance of forests. He will also talk about log selection, veneer production and current trends in the industry. And shares with you his many years of experience with this great material.
