At the University of Liechtenstein, for three days, students made some experiment with wooden boards and beams and developed structural concepts for a new model workshop. Following initial models and tests in the studio, the structures were built on site by the students on a 1:1 scale. In a selection process it was established which supporting structure had proved to be both innovative and feasible.

During a seminar week, the students then produced the structural components in the workshop in collaboration with a carpenter and at the end of the week erected them at the location behind the university on the foundations prepared by the master builder. The support structure of the workshop consists of curved boards, designed in the form of an arch and suspended in an undulating form on a fixed mounted gauge offset by half the width. The counter tension ensures the static height despite the fineness of the boards. In order to optimise the individual support elements, a large number of trials and break tests were necessary.
