Timber City

Timber City is an ongoing multi-year research project that explores the environmental efficacy and the industrial, structural, and architectural potential of urban “mass” timber construction technologies.  A research initiative of Gray Organschi Architecture, and supported in part by the Hines Research Fund for Advanced Sustainability at Yale University, Timber City is developing a comprehensive approach for incorporating timber construction into cities,  an approach which simultaneously addresses regional material flows, economies of carbon generation and sequestration, the development of new industrial processes, and the complex spatial, architectural, legal, and logistical challenges of constructing timber buildings in dense urban centers.
