Timber-Frame Design: The Art of Exposed Structure
There is something inherently spectacular about the look and feel of exposed timber. It’s more than a structural system. It’s a natural at creating architectural drama—and is often the most practical, cost-effective, and sustainable choice for achieving that objective. This entertaining and informative workshop will demonstrate how heavy timber and mass timber systems can be used to great effect in a variety of timber-frame applications. Emphasizing the need for form to follow function, it will cover traditional and contemporary design approaches, combining design topics such as species, finish, structural system selection, truss design, and connection methods with practical subjects such as construction type, fire performance and hurricane resistance.
