This paper presents an educational experience developed in the course entitled “Architectural Design and Digital Fabrication of Timber Structures”, which was offered to students of the Higher Technical School of Architecture – University of Sevilla during the 2012-2013 academic year. The main goal of the teaching experience was to offer students a survey of the new potentials of architectural design of timber structures in combination with emergent digital design technologies in the fields of design, engineering and fabrication, using the resources available at the university’s digital fabrication laboratory, Fab Lab Sevilla. Teaching methodology was based on a combination of the principles of case studies, collaborative learning, learning by doing and deconstruction-and-reconstruction.
