  • Helmut Krapmeier, Austria

    Austrian state prize architecture and sustainability

    & How much wood does a house need

    Helmut Krapmeier searched for a means of making a positive contribution after the first energy crisis: building physics as a special subject (building energy balances, solar energy use, etc.) during his architectural studies, and graduated from Vienna University of Technology in 1977 with dissertation on "Energy efficient rehabilitation of postwar housing estates utilising solar energy", completed university degree programme on “Ecology, man and the environment“ in Tübingen in 1982 and one-year postgraduate course on "Energy consultancy and energy management” at Technical University of Berlin in 1985. He is co-founder of ITEM, an interdisciplinary team (mechanical engineer, process engineer, industrial engineer, physicist and architect) in Munich and provided support services for the “Eco-solar house” demonstration project in Munich (a system building with controlled ventilation, heat recovery, inlet air heating, passive solar use and 45m² solar array with 24m³ storage tank), including guided tours for members of the public, experts and architects in 1985-1990.

    From 1990 till 2016he worked as scientific officer at Energieinstitut Vorarlberg (, being counsellor to architects, developers and private clients, project manager of CEPHEUS-Austria (about 100 passive dwelling units at nine sites in Austria), juror for architectural competitions: i.e.: Holzbaupreis (timber house award, Vorarlberg); competitions related to the solarCity development in Linz, Austrian state prize for architecture and sustainability (biannual since 2006 to date), Swiss solar prize; etc.

    Curator and moderator of the biennual conference “tri – symposium for energy efficient architecture” since 1996 to date;

    speaker or moderator at numerous conferences, meetings and seminars.

    Since 1997 he is working as lecturer at Linz University of Art, department for architecture; visiting professor at the Danube University Krems, Center for Architecture, Construction and Environment. Since 2014 he is lecturer at FH Salzburg – university for technical sciences, course of study “Smart Buildings”.

    Helmut received EuroSolar Prize for Architecture and Urban Planning in 2000, „Österreichischer Umweltpreis“ (Prize for Austrian Environment) awarded by OGUT (Austrian Society For Environment and Technology) in 2001 and Mitwelt- und Energiepreis 2016 (award by the federal state of Vorarlberg for outstanding engagement according to environment in general and especially for sustainable and energy efficient buildings) in 2016.

  • Dr. Matthias Ammann, Austria

    How architects and carpenters  created a new wooden architecture

    I am a free consulter with an office in Nüziders ( My clients are associations & organizations in Vorarlberg, Germany, Switzerland and Italy. Most of my time I am working for carpenter organisations.

    I worked a lot with the carpenters and architects of Vorarlberg in the last twenty years. In 1997 I took the chance to build up the Vorarlberger holzbau_kunst (, and I am still working there as director. Presently we organize

    the 12 . Vorarlberger Holzbaupreis – the timber architecture competition of Vorarlberg.

    Since 2000  I also was deeply involved in the building up of the Holzbau Austria organization ( There my core areas are the development, the strategy & the communication of this association. In the year 2005 I was invited to work in the Timber Construction Europe ( Till today I am responsible for communication of the organization.

  • Katja Vahtikari, Finland

    Wood in interiors – the effect on indoor climate, user perception and well-being

    Katja has been working with wood for more than a decade. Her research focuses on the interior use of wood and recently she has been part of two interdisciplinary projects, which explore the multifunctional use of wood: Wood2New (WoodWisdom Net+) and Wood Life (Aalto Energy Efficiency research programme). She has been teaching various wood material courses in the Master’s programme of Forest Products Technology at Helsinki University of Technology and in the Master’s programme of Bioproduct Technology at Aalto University.


  • Franco Piva, Italy

    Timber what’s next?! Off-site production and wooden buildings

    Franco Piva graduated at the faculty of civil engineering in Trento with a thesis on wood construction prepared at Chalmers University of Technology in Göteborg under the supervision of professors Björn Åkesson, Robert Kliger and Maurizio Piazza. He worked in some leading companies and he has extensive experience in the field of wood building design with different construction systems, from single family house up to the multi-storey building, from the platform frame to the bolted panel, glulam and CLT. In 2007 he founded the Company Ergodomus which deals exclusively with design of timber structures taking care of all the various aspects: from statics to building physics to the 3d production ready drawings, including CNC machine programming. He participated actively in many projects for the reconstruction of public buildings after the earthquake in Emilia in 2012.


    "I define myself as a timber engineer as I deal with all aspects concerning the engineering of structures made fully or partly using this wonderful material: static, building physics, construction drawing with perfect integration into the BIM workflow using .ifc files, plans production and assembly to the CNC machine programming for automated cutting.

    The word OPTIMIZATION is one of the keywords when I face a new project: not only reduction of the amount of material but also and especially evaluation of the times of assembly and pre-assembly to decrease costs privileging the off-site operations regarding those on-site."



  • Peter McCurdy, Great Britain

    The reconstruction of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre – A Celebration of Craftsmanship in Wood
