Presented by the Wood Structures Academy, this webinar will explore innovative uses of wood in building design, focusing on mass timber and cross-laminated timber (CLT), and profile two unique projects that embody the aesthetic, environmental, and structural strengths of wood as a building material.
Partner Brian Court, AIA, will present on the Bullitt Center, a prototype high-performance urban office building located in Seattle, dubbed the “greenest commercial building in the world.”
The Wood Structures Academy delves into the innovative design and structural uses of wood materials in residential and commercial applications. It explores environmental and aesthetic benefits, technical advances, code-compliance, as well as the inherent opportunities for using woodin both conventional and unconventional ways. As innovative design solutions become increasingly critical in creating sustainable, cost-effective, modern structures, wood is seeing a new surge in popularity for both its natural beauty and performance qualities.
Brian demonstrates outstanding design excellence and leadership in his work advancing complex programmatic demands, rooted in a rigorous performance-based design process. His involvement with numerous high profile and complex landmark design projects, and deft combination of both time-tested and innovative design strategies and emerging technologies, has earned Brian the reputation as an advocate for groundbreaking sustainable design.…
