Architect and philosopher, Yves Weinand fuses art and science with passion. His innovative wood construction research results in ingenious and majestic buildings.

The film highlights the research that Yves Weinand coordinates within the department of research in wood construction (Ibois) at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and shows a series of constructions that the architect has carried out during his career:

  • Water tower (Beersel - Belgium)
  • Chapel (Saint-Loup - Switzerland)
  • Theater (Vidy - Switzerland)
  • Cathedral benches (Lausanne - Switzerland)
  • Parliament of Vaud (Lausanne - Switzerland)
  • Carpentry (Manternach - Luxembourg)
  • Railway station (Rossinière - Switzerland)

The documentary follows the work of Yves Weinand through his involvement in publications such as the Cahiers de l'Ibois, during conferences including the launch of the Wood for Bauhaus program in Paris.

Finally, the feature film paints a portrait of a character inhabited by his work during meetings at his home or while traveling abroad.
