We welcome Tenure-track faculty at accredited Architecture schools throughout the US to apply for an intensive 3-day workshop geared towards equipping faculty interested in teaching Mass Timber design.
Workshop will be led by Tom S. Chung FAIA, Principal Leers Weinzapfel Associates and Professor of Practice in Architecture at Auburn University, recipient of the inaugural ACSA Timber Education Prize in 2022 and Dr. Peggi Clouston, Professor of Wood Mechanics and Timber Engineering at UMass Amherst.
With the goal of equipping you with a holistic understanding of Mass Timber design in academia, design profession and wood industry, the workshop will include lectures, discussions and hands on participation in timber education, design and research along with travel throughout the region visiting industry and professional partners critical to the Mass Timber development: Sustainable Forestry and Harvesting, Lumber production, CLT fabrication and processing, leading architect, engineer and developer team, construction site and built precedents visits.
The workshop is all-inclusive for participants. Travel expenses, lodging and meals are funded through a generous sponsorship from the Softwood Lumber Board. This opportunity is only for architecture faculty in accredited programs in US universities. Preference will be given to junior faculty that show keen interest, commitment as well as support from their respective school heads to incorporate the knowledge gain through the workshop into their own courses in Mass Timber design.
