The festival and a selective show of contemporary wooden architecture – Timber Construction Show 2022, which has been held for 17 years, will take place from 24 to 26 March 2022 at the Center for Architecture and Metropolitan Planning (CAMP) and in the Prague Holešovice Market, in Hall 13.
Timber Construction Show is an architectural show including a three-day festival with lectures and a month-long exhibition of the best wooden realizations from the Czech Republic and Slovakia (March 24 – April 28, 2022). The Timber Construction Show takes place in Prague and Slovakia. The Bratislava part of the festival will take place from 16 May to 10 June 2022 in the Austrian Cultural Forum. An important part of the Salon is the publication of the Yearbook of Wooden Architecture ´22, which will present the 23 most interesting projects of Czech and Slovak architects and 4 realizations of progressive constructions of foreign studios from the last period. We expect the book to be published and christened in early March this year.
The aim of the Timber Construction Show is to raise awareness about wooden buildings, to connect architects with the public with an interest in this branch of architecture, to deepen knowledge in this area and to report on important developments abroad. The show includes a number of presentations by Czech and Slovak architects, as well as important foreign guests. The specifics of the festival lie in its attractive form and ability to capture the artistically conceived space, which combines an attractive exhibition within a site-specific installation, cafe, relaxation area, children's corner, indoor forest, auditorium for lectures and space for twenty exhibitors - presentation selected material suppliers. Visitors to the Timber Construction Show are the general public or future investors, architects, suppliers of materials and representatives of construction companies. The festival allows to acquaint the professional and lay public about product and technological innovations not only domestic but also foreign production, construction know-how and sharing practical experience in planning and implementation of contemporary wooden architecture.
We are pleased that foreign guests will perform at the festival this year:
- Swedish studio White Arkitekter (www.whitearkitekter.com).
- Italian architect Peter Pichler (www.peterpichler.eu)
- Philipp Zumbrunnen, a leading specialist in timber construction systems, from the British design and implementation office EURBAN (www.eurban.co.uk)
- Andreas Breuss from Austria (www.andibreuss.at)
- Author of wooden systems and Junior Research Group Leader at the University of Stuttgart Dr. Marie Davidová, who will speak on the topic of Wood as a primary medium for urban ecosystems
Are you an architect or an architectural studio that has recently completed an interesting realization using wood? Every year in mid-September, we publish a call for architects to submit their completed buildings of various scales and purposes and thus become part of the Salon. In addition to the topicality of the implementation, another condition for registration is a high proportion of wood in the load-bearing structure, or its non-traditional use.
The selection then takes place in a curatorial way, which we try, among other things, to achieve the most diverse mosaic of typological species and thus create the most attractive imaginary "showcase" of the field.
We will be happy to provide you with more information and conditions of participation on request.
Are you a company, supplier or manufacturer that produces interesting materials for wooden constructions, for example? Or you supply entire buildings or constructions based on wood and you really stand behind your work
As the Salon has a demanding audience and visitors, as with selections of architectural works, we also pay attention to the right composition for partners and exhibitors. Although we offer several levels of partnership and also forms of presentation, we always prepare, for example, uniform presentation places at the Salon venue, so that the sound of the space is as good as possible.
If you would like to present yourself at this selection event, do not hesitate to contact us. Space for company presentations is limited.
Due to the concept of the Salon, there is also enough space for other non-traditional forms of cooperation and your presentation (eg 3D objects, interesting installations, projections, etc.). Therefore, we do not oppose any ideas in this direction from both architects and partners and exhibitors. You create the salon together with us!
