Architecture For Humanity Glulam Project

If you haven't been down to Silo Park to check out the graceful timber structures creating the forecourt/Atea then you should be quick - these are going to be dismantled at the end of the exhibition for the glulam beams to move on to their next project. These large roof beams are from a warehouse demolition in Manukau and were temporarily donated to Architecture for Humanity before they are re-used as the genesis for a variety of projects across the North Island.  The beams are going to be recycled after the installation and used in the next series of glulam projects, and other components recycled where possible. This urban intervention forms the beams into three modules, defining the space in front of the Silo's, and encouraging public interaction. You can watch the video of the construction of these beautiful objects, which documents the logistics of the construction process, and the enjoyment and reward in producing the finished installation.
