The library is putting architecture on show with a series of monthly talks featuring design experts from the City of Sydney area. This month, we’re taking on the rise of engineered timber products. The so-called ‘timber renaissance’ is changing the way we think about design and construction in Australia.
The revival of timber as a key construction component for a gamut of building types comes on the back of advances in timber technology manufacturing. The research behind the renaissance shows that building with timber has huge health and environmental benefits.
Georgios Anagnostou, senior associate at Jackson Teece Architects and Brad Gray, the Make It Wood campaign manager at Planet Ark are talking about all things timber technology. Looking at the adaptability and workability of numerous timber construction methods, these experts will explore how architects and engineers are utilising engineered timber. They’ll also chat about how timber technology will impact our human and natural environments as well as our attitudes to architecture.
Bookings are essential as places are limited.
