Timber preparation for the final project
Master in Advanced Ecological Buildings & Biocities
The students of the Master in Advanced Ecological Buildings and Biocities have begun to prepare the wood that will be used to build the final project. To develop this process, each of the participants assumes a specific task that they then rotate in order to learn from all the stages that need to be taken into consideration.
This effort represents a subsequent stage to the sustainable management of the forest where Valldaura Labs harvests approximately 40 trees each season. Every specimen is individually and carefully selected based on the Collserola Natural Park and Valldaura estate Forest Management Plans. This selection has the intention to accelerate the development of the regionally appropriate mature ecosystem evolutionarily optimized to enhance biodiversity, carbon sequestration, air purification and resilience.
