Samenvatting

How far can we go with a lightweight structure that consists of almost weightless twigs? At what point does wicker need support from an additional structure? And how can
we scale up a traditional technique, which is usually related to basket weaving and small objects, to the scale of architecture? These are some initial questions that arise while
working with wicker. However, the context that brought us to work with this peculiar material is based on experience gained in a series of workshops over the previous five years. The project brief of the Intensive Program 2012 relates back to the TECTONIC series of Erasmus Intensive Programs as well as to the STRUCTURE series started last year. With the STRUCTURE series, beginning with last year’s Intensive Program, a whole array of new structural questions arose. Research into the tectonics of almost erratic materials moved towards an exploration of various aspects of structure, flexibility and bending while the topic of connecting became a major concern. With the use of wicker in this year’s Intensive Program, our attention was driven to expand the experiences gained from working with plywood and OSB last year in a related yet very different technique
