A Football Field’s Worth of Wood and Glue

Tocci Stock


We’ve come a long way with building technology and materials science over the past century. So when J. Mayer H. Architects was selected to build a football field-sized parasol in Seville, the obvious forward-thinking choice would be to construct the worlds largest wooden structure. Yes, wood is still quite ubiquitous within the industry, but what about fastening these CNC-milled members together? High-tech 3d prototyped carbon fiber connections? Well, sort of; more like high quality glue. Let’s not downplay it here, this is specially engineered glue that is said to withstand 176° temps without melting. We’ll take their word for it.
