WFC Practical Training Workshop
CAN-KOR Wood Festival 2015, with Inha University architecture students not only train them on WFC, but also brings joy to toddlers housed in an orphanage
Inha University’s architecture students have started to work on the design of multi-level deck structure with vertical walls and a tower specifically for toddlers and pre-schoolers housed in an orphanage on which they can play and rest since April 2015. The talent donation project, titled as ‘The GIFTs’, is the second one following last year’s and, thus, ‘Two’ has been added.
The project, not only train future architects on proper design and use of wood in WFC, but also showcase proper use of SPF dimension lumber in exterior applications. All the members of the deck were incised, pre-cut,-notched and -drilled, pressure treated and dried twice to meet H3 (Above Ground) Korean use category, and installed at the site to ensure durability and safety of the deck.
Pine Tree Home is a child care institution housing more than 80 children up to 18 year old at Bupyeong, Incheon city. Inha University’s Department of Architecture plans to donate their talents and labour for all 10 orphanages in the area with custom designed wood structures.
