Timber City

Timber City is an ongoing multi-year research initiative of Gray Organschi Architecture to explore urban mass timber construction technologies, supported in part by the Hines Research Fund for Advanced Sustainability at Yale University. Currently, this research project focuses on 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.
