The Wood Revolution: inspiring architecture with innovative structural systems and new opportunities

There is a quiet revolution going on in Europe and Canada โ€” a revolution that is changing the way US architects view structural wood building systems.

As a structural building component, wood offers many environmental benefits, including the ability to maximize carbon storage and minimize carbon dioxide emissions associated with the design, construction and operation of buildings.

This presentation will connect structure with architecture by introducing a variety of innovative structural wood products and systems. For example, cross laminated timber (CLT) is an engineered wood building system designed to complement light and heavy-timber framing options. Case study examples of modern innovative projects in Canada, Australia and Europe will demonstrate how to use and apply these products and systems.

Credits are provided by the speaker.

This presentation is co-sponsored by BSA-COTE.
