Timber City

Timber City  proposes a radical pivot from construction practices that have dominated North American cities for over a century: instead of utilizing steel or concrete, the architecture of the future city might be harvested from trees.


Mass timber structural systems, and the sustainable forestry practices and material science that underlie them, promise a new synergy between dense cities, healthy forests, and a thriving industrial economy based in wood.
