HIT news (School of Architecture Text/Picture) "I have a new understanding of the characteristics of wooden structures through this competition. At the same time, I also found the basic theories and subject knowledge that I have learned to be very practical." On October 7th, the “2018 Third National University Wood Structure Design Invitational Defense Final” was held at HIT.

After the sections of presentation, question and answer, and expert review, the students from Tongji University won the first prize for the work “Living Under the Sky”, and the works of HIT students, “Ribbon & Cone,” and “Island· Sea· Build· Bridge· Gate” won the second prize. Teams from Southeast University, South China University of Technology, Beijing Forestry University, and Harbin Institute of Technology won the third prize.

Wooden structures have had a history of brilliant achievements in China. The charming timber-roofed palace has become one of the typical symbols of oriental culture. Nowadays, many performance advantages of wooden structures have attracted increasing attention. The integration and cooperation of majors in architecture and construction has become an important topic in the current education of wood architecture. For this purpose, in 2016, the National College of Higher Education’s National Institute of Civil Engineering Steering Committee, Wood Structure Teaching Research Branch, initiated the “National University Wood Structure Design Invitational Tournament”.

This year, the HIT School of Architecture hosted the competition. With the theme of “Gate”, the wooden structures were built to be the entrance of scenic spot, also functioning as a tourist center. The architecture was additionally required to coordinate with the natural and cultural features of the scenic spot, which were expressed in features such as properties of the wood, timberwork, and construction technology. More than 20 student works from 12 universities, including HIT, Tongji University, South China University of Technology, Northeast Forestry University, Beijing Forestry University, and Taiwan University of Science and Technology, were sent to the competition, 8 of which were shortlisted for the final.
