German Half-timber Abstract 4
Photograph - Photograph
This is a detail of a building in the old town of Eltville in Germany.
Per Wikipedia: Half-timbering refers to a structure with a frame of load-bearing timber, creating spaces between the timbers called panels or in German Facher, which are then filled-in with some kind of non-structural material known as infill. The frame is often left exposed on the exterior of the building.
Half-timbered construction in the Northern European vernacular building style is characteristic of medieval and early modern Denmark, England, Germany, and parts of France and Switzerland, where timber was in good supply yet stone and associated skills to dress the stonework were in short supply. In half-timbered construction timbers that were riven (split) in half provided the complete skeletal framing of the building.
