ARQU-3325 Seminario de Estructuras en Madera

Studying the proposed content includes wood properties to then determine the benefits that may be derived from its use in some architectural projects. All the explanations provided, whether theoretical, technical or scientific, represent what the body to some extent senses: wood is closer to human nature as compared with minerals, which are also used in living spaces. The aesthetic, environmental and technical attributes of wood as construction material have been well proved. To the extent that we encourage a design practice and construction with wood, being familiarized with the characteristics of the material, and guaranteeing its durability, we will be able to overcome the lack of trust associated with its usage, as it is considered a perishable material. At the same time, we will encourage the implementation of forest programs to benefit from natural resources while ensuring their renewable character.
