Abstract
This laminated wood structure for a kindergarten is based on the same housing-design method of 'Shinkabe; wooden column-exposed wall construction' which has been used for the Japanese traditional wooden houses for a long time. This kindergarten, in spite of containing relatively wide span rooms like school gymnasium, class rooms and meeting room has no big size members. Not only from the view point of artistic detailing but also in economical and modular co-ordination factors, laminated wood columns and beams are one-side same thickness members (width size 12cm). To obtain the necessary performance as the kindergarten , they are used frequently as the members of part of Three Dimensional Truss or those of Rigid Rahmen frame using reliable glued-in rod connection.As a result, we could achieve a long-span school gymnasium having high-side light, deep eaves and walls with smooth suface. They were necessary to assure for children to be active,
