2022 Timber Competition

Embracing new structural and ecological possibilities of wood construction, entrants will design a mid-rise, mixed-use complex that includes short stay housing, a large community wellness facility, and an urban marketplace, all interlaced with a new urban transit center. Entrants are challenged to propose construction systems in scenarios that draw optimally on the performance characteristics of not one but a variety of wood technologies and are encouraged to think about the site as a testing ground for socially, materially, and environmentally progressive and innovative models of sustainable urban living.
