Think Wood visits to talk timber
October 17, 2022
As part of National Forest Products Week, the School of Architecture and the School of Design put on a lobby exhibit of wood based student work, and was host to the Think Wood tour, a traveling exhibition of wood technologies.
The student exhibit was held Oct. 17th through the 19th in the Cowgill Hall lobby, and featured student design work in timber, like those pictured here. It also showcased award-winning buildings constructed with timber, and timber samples from both the College of Architecture, Arts, and Design and the College of Natural Resources and Environment.
Think Wood set up in front of Cassell Coliseum for Homecoming, and then moved to the grassy area next to Cowgill during the days of the student exhibit. The tour is the product of a partnership with the Softwood Lumber Board, U.S. Forest Service, the U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities, and the APA-Engineered Wood Association, and it is endorsed by the National Building Museum. Think Wood travels nationally to educate professionals, practitioners, and students in architecture and construction fields on sustainable forestry, biophilic design, and innovative wood products. In their mobile interactive exhibit, they displayed models of real world examples of wood buildings, and samples of mass timber and other technologies.
