As a mystical place of longing and an irreplaceable resource, the FOREST is an important basis of human culture on all continents. Expectations of it are growing: It is supposed to be a preserver of biodiversity, a climate savior, a storehouse of raw materials, a backdrop to fairy tales, and a local recreation destination. But what does this mean for the future coexistence between forests and humans in times of global droughts, fires, and more intensive forestry and agriculture?
In their work, our students drew attention to challenges and potentials in order to promote a mindful approach to our environment.

In the design project, we first learned about the forest in its different forms and studied its role as an actor in our ecosystem. In the next step, we identified specific places where a problematic point of human interaction with the forest was elaborated. The solutions to be elaborated resulted in an architectural intervention that depicts an overall narrative to show opportunities for a better coexistence of forests and humans.

The works of the TUM students can be seen from 20.02.23 -21.02.23, in Pavilion 333.

TU&M: Research project on circular timber frame elements launched


On February 1st, 2023, the Kick-off Meeting for the research project “Timber Use and Maintain – TU&M”, started on January 1st the same year, was held at the Wood Research Institute in Munich. The project aims to develop circular timber frame elements considering their technical, environmental and economic feasibility.

The project emerged from the TUM.wood network ( at the Technical University of Munich and includes the professorships on Wood Science, Timber Structures and Building Construction, Architecture and Timber Construction, Architectural Informatics and Circular Economy. The industry partners are Haas Fertigbau and Brüninghoff Group. The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) coordinated by the Agency of Renewable Resources (FNR).

Exhibition WoodCycle


During the winter semester 22/23, students from the Master's degree programmes in architecture and civil engineering worked together to develop concepts for a bicycle bridge in Munich using timber/hybrid construction methods. The aim was to design a path connection for cyclists over the edge of the slope of the Harlachinger Berg. This connection was designed and constructed in the form of a bridge structure in order to reduce the structural intervention in the existing nature reserve to a minimum.
In the future, the bridge should become a point of attraction for Munich's cycling tourism and the residents of Harlaching. The focus of the design work was on cycling. The students also developed concepts for workshops, accommodation and catering. The constructive part of the project work focuses on the bridge structure, construction, prefabrication and assembly.
This year's sponsorship prize for the "WoodCycle" project of the Münchener Architekten- und Ingenieur-Verein e.V. will be awarded at the exhibition opening. The contributions of the TUM students can be seen from 23.02.23 -24.02.23, in Pavilion 333.
