The objective is to promote sustainable construction through the use of natural low embodied energy materials. It explores the potential of local species with high mechanical performance such as Eucalyptus globulus to be used in shell structures made with elastically curved laths. The project and construction of the eucalyptus triaxial gridshell are developed in the frame of the European Life Project Lugo+Biodinámico
