Crafting the HOLD building system

December 19, 2023

HOLD has constructed a real-size mock-up of its building system using mass timber components, specifically Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) and Glue-Laminated Timber (Glulam). This remarkable load-bearing structure showcases the modular nature of mass timber construction. Collaborating with its community of partners, HOLD created the mock-up to meticulously assess element compatibility and enhance construction efficiency.

HOLD's visionary approach entails the manufacturing of all building components within controlled factory environments, followed by their efficient transportation to the construction site. Here, these components are skilfully assembled into fully functional buildings. This method yields numerous advantages, including expedited construction timelines and the promotion of a pristine and environmentally conscious production site.

HOLD previously made other mock-ups for various architectural elements, including their façade components and bespoke ceiling islands. Keep an eye out for forthcoming updates on HOLD's progress as they advance toward the construction of their prototype building.

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
