The Auburn University School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences invites you to a seminar titled, “The Future of Tall: Building a Wood High-Rise in the U.S,” presented by Thomas Robinson, architect and founder of LEVER Architecture of Portland, OR. Cross-laminated timber (CLT), a newly engineered wood product system, is gaining popularity in mid- and high-rise residential and non-residential construction. Robinson will share how this material is revolutionizing sustainable construction with details about his firm’s pioneering use of CLT in “Framework” – a project slated to become the first mass timber high-rise in the U.S.
The seminar will be held on Wednesday, October 4, from 2:00 – 3:15 p.m. at the Telfair B. Peet Theatre. A reception will take place in the main lobby and patio of the theatre immediately following the seminar. This is a complimentary event for faculty, students and members of the general public.
