Sino-European Wood (SEW), Sino-European Wood Technical Design and Supporting Center, is an institution on modern technology of timber structures and applications based on the cooperation between Shanghai Jiao Tong University and European Wood.

SEW is dedicated to the education, promotion and application of the knowledge, materials, products and technology of European modern timber building through training, seminars, exhibitions and projects.

SEW, as the frontline of EW in China, provides a channel for European wood associations, institutes and companies to promote advanced modern wood technology in Chinese market and apply on specific projects. SEW sets up a platform for experts and professionals from Europe and China to share experiences and exchange opinions.

In recent years, Prof. Liu, the director of SEW, has conducted and finished several timber building projects, including Cangjing Pavillion of Shanghai Longhua Temple as a traditional wood technology case; Hangzhou Xiangji Temple as the first religious building with modern timber structure in China; Liuzhou Kaiyuan Temple, Yuhang Chaoshan art museum, etc, all of which as the combination of Chinese traditional timber structure and modern timber technology.

For the second phase, regular publication will be compiled for the development and exchange of modern timber structure in China and abroad.

Architecture will be the core content of the publication, with structure and wood art as the support and complement. Influential architects, engineers and scholars from East and West will be invited to join in the editorial committee for decision-making and advice.

The first edition was published in the autumn of 2017. Second publication will be executed end of 2019 focus on multi story and high-rise timber structures.

Eco-city project

Dongying, is an oil-dependent city around the mouth of Yellow River in Shandong Province. The local government is intended to transfer the industry structure and activate the economy by building an eco-city. Sino-European Wood is helping them make research on the feasibility and planning of building a wood industrial eco-city as the base of the import, processing, distribution, R & D of materials and modern timber building products in China. Large scale of wood buildings will be planned and built in the eco-city for living and working.

Demo project of international cooperation at Jiaotong University in Shanghai

Dongying

2014-2015, with support of European Wood, Sino-European Wood had a cooperation with AIX design company of Sweden for International Communication Center with 10-12 storey students’ apartment and activity center. It is designed to be the first high-rise timber structure with CLT system in China.
