This technical lecture unravels the design intricacies of a timber-framed university building in Arkansas, USA and offers valuable insights into considerations for timber design.

Watch this technical lecture's recording, outlining the design journey of a timber-framed building and unveiling the strategies employed to overcome its distinctive structural challenges.

By delving into the architectural intent, dissecting the client brief, and exploring construction possibilities at the competition stage, the design team efficiently analyzed detailed studies and considered key elements upfront, ultimately achieving structural optimization.

Drawing from the insights gained whilst working in this project, Kelly Harrison shares broader considerations in timber design, providing valuable lessons applicable to various contexts.
