Timber in the City: Opportunities for Architecture + Urbanism
Parsons School of Design invites you to New York City this fall for the third biannual timber conference sponsored by the Binational Softwood Lumber Council.
Timber has the potential to play a vital role in the design and creation of healthy and vibrant urban space on a large scale. This conference will look critically at the current use of mass timber and speculate on the opportunities that the material brings to architecture and urbanism. With voices from multiple disciplines, the goal is to build upon the present discourse around mass timber with an inquiry about the implications for architecture and design; health and material research; and global urbanization and climate change. The conference runs in parallel with the third Timber in the City Student Design Competition.
