木材创新设计中心,加拿大, Michael Green Architecture

木材创新设计中心(WIDC)是研究人员、学者和设计专业人员的聚集地,为木材的创新使用产生想法。大楼的低层提供专门用于综合木材设计教育的设施。高层则为政府和木材行业相关组织提供办公空间。这座八层楼高的建筑有97英尺,是世界上最高的现代全木制办公大楼,这个基准很快就会被其他大规模的木材建筑超越。

The Wood Innovation Design Centre (WIDC) serves as a gathering place for researchers, academics, and design professionals generating ideas for innovative uses of wood. The lower floors of the building provide facilities dedicated to education in Integrated Wood Design. Upper floors provide office space for government and wood industry-related organizations. The eight-story building stands 97 feet tall — the world’s tallest modern all-timber office building, a benchmark soon to be surpassed by other mass timber buildings.

为了展示使用工程大宗木材产品建造中高层建筑的潜力,在底层楼板上没有使用混凝土。该设计采用了简单、”干燥 “的结构,包括系统集成的CLT楼板、胶合板柱和梁以及大宗木材墙。该建筑的结构简单,易于复制,这是为了让更多的建筑师、工程师和私人开发商认识到大量木材设计作为钢铁和混凝土替代品的价值而做出的基本选择。

Conceived to showcase the potential for building mid- and high-rise structures using engineered mass timber products, there is no concrete used above the ground floor slab. The design incorporates a simple, ‘dry’ structure of systems-integrated CLT floor panels, Glulam columns and beams, and mass timber walls. The building’s structural simplicity is easily replicated, a fundamental choice made in the interest of seeing many more architects, engineers, and private developers recognize the value of mass timber design as alternative to steel and concrete.

该项目通过项目组广泛的工程研究和测试,证明了大量木材建筑技术的安全性和有效性,在北美建筑领域开创了许多先例。正如The Case For Tall Wood(M. Green & E. Karsh,2012)中所描述的那样,WIDC的基本结构概念可以用于高度为20层和30层的建筑,几乎不需要修改。很快,我们预计北美的建筑规范将很快开始采用高大木结构作为标准的、安全的做法。

This project has set many precedents in the North American building context through the extensive engineering research and testing by the project team to prove the safety and validity of mass timber construction techniques. The basic structural concept for WIDC can be used for buildings up to 20 and 30 stories in height with little modification, as described in The Case For Tall Wood (M. Green & E. Karsh, 2012). Soon, we expect that North American building codes will soon begin to adopt Tall Wood construction as a standard, safe practice.
