As part of the Global Institute of Sustainable Forestry's "Art of Wood" event series made possible by funding from the Ball Foundation, visiting architects Michael Green and Andrew Waugh presented the latest in timber-based architecture and design. Andrew Waugh presents Waugh Thistleton's 9 storey building made from cross-laminated timber (CLT). Waugh and Green also talk about their new project: Finding the Forest Through the Trees (FFTT). The FFTT project is an innovative, open source plan for building tall wood buildings through a "strong column-weak beam" balloon-frame approach that uses large format mass timber panels for vertical structure.
