The exhibition features 24 critically acclaimed projects designed across 24 years, many of which are built and well-known. They have pushed design boundaries through their exploration of the opportunities and challenges of timber structures. The exhibition celebrates the capabilities of engineered timber from concept to construction.

‘Forest of Fabrication’ includes models of the flat packed Naked House (2006), Kingsdale School Auditorium (2007), Timber Stadium proposal (2009), Tre Toren, Rundeskogen (2012), Endless Stair (2013), Floatopolis proposal (2014), Sky Health and Fitness (2015), Maggie’s Oldham (2017) and the Stirling Prize winning Hastings Pier (2017). Many of the models exhibited have never been publicly displayed and are shown alongside digital projections of concept sketches, project drawings, construction and final photographs.
