After a relative decline during Modernism, the use of large-scale timber structures is becoming a growing trend at the beginning of the 21st Century. Different vectors converge to make this happen. The most relevant of these vectors being the increasing technification and diversification of wood products as construction materials, such as micro-laminated and cross-laminated panels, the contemporary demands around sustainability, and the development of digital tools to design, simulate and fabricate innovative and efficient architectural structures that take advantage of timber properties. The present paper analyses the complex panorama of recent works approaching them from the point of view of resistant structure and form generation.
