Project Description

FROM THE AIBC:

The Wood Innovation Design Centre is, for the moment, the world's tallest modern all timber structure, a record soon to be broken by other mass timber buildings in the works. Michael Green Architecture sought to demonstrate economical, repeatable technologies for building high-rise structures with timber and was realized as a Design Build with a short schedule of design and construction over 15 months. Testing of fire, smoke, acoustic and structural innovations happened in tandem with design and construction leaving little time to adapt throughout.
