Abstract
This paper explains the construction scheme of a modular post formed gridshell. The scheme uses timber modules connecting laths of 900 mm length into a 2-layer module. The scheme and the module are designed to efficiently handle both Form Finding, Fabrication and Raising, and they are tested through the construction of a full scale pavilion in Trondheim, Norway.
