The aim of this project is to create a structure that does not need any tool to be built. Only throughout geometry, without any bolts, nails or glue, this wooden structural system can grow as much as needed.

To do so, the project relies on a self-sustaining joint system, created by Josep Ferrando. By repeating this joint, the structure can span and create columns, beams and surfaces.
