Assistant Professors Trevor Butler and Veronica Madonna will be presenting their shared experience in mass timber design in the next Global Studio Lecture Series on Wednesday May 27, 2020 at 9am MT. Mass Timber is quickly emerging around the world as a main building material because of its inherent low carbon characteristics and ability to have a positive impact on the environment.
The lecture will provide an architectural and sustainable design perspective on using mass timber as a main building material and the advancements in Canada and around the world. Trevor and Veronica will explore the opportunities and challenges that are faced in designing with mass timber today and their thoughts on the future of the building industry.
