Is Wood the Building Material of the Future?

For centuries, wood has been prized for its beauty and tactile qualities – “Wood is the most humanly intimate of all materials,” said Frank Lloyd Wright. In the field sustainable architecture, wood is experiencing a renaissance, in the form of mass timber, which is finding growing acceptance as a structural building component. A recent Think Tank entitled “Working with Timber – New Possibilities for Design, Construction and Sustainability” brought experts from the design and timber industries together to discuss and celebrate this remarkable transformation.
