The timber renaissance

Event Date: 
09 October 2015
Linton and Kay Gallery, Old Perth Technical School
Level 1, 137 St Georges Terrace

Learn what construction might look like in the cities of the future, thanks to the property industry’s move towards mass timber construction. Join local architects and international guest speaker Alex de Rijke to find out how and why mass engineered timber is increasingly being used in place of other building materials for large commercial developments. Attendees will learn about the diverse array of benefits when it comes to building with timber including cost, speed, renewability, carbon storage, and health and wellbeing.

Prof de Rijke is founder of UK practice dRMM and former Dean of the School of Architecture at the Royal College of Art, and has lectured around the world.
