Laminated timer beams interlink in cruciform structures which combine to form the roof plane of this canteen for the Technical University. Facades remain open where possible. Timber posts support not the extremities of the beams but their centre. Though the pattern of beams overhead creates a variety of subspaces in its subdivision of the canteen's open zone this play of squares is nevertheless more enthralling on paper than it is in reality.
