The reciprocal structure, prefabricated on the construction site, was assembled module by module. Four wood-wood joining systems have been designed to suit precisely the forces within the structure. They optimize each implemented connection. The complex geometry developed by the architects requires very high precision during assembly. Thus, diverse assembly procedures had to be established in close collaboration with the timber contractor Timberframing. The centre will soon welcome artists, researchers and graphic designers from all over the world.
