Also featured on the list are towers, university buildings and an airport terminal, illustrating mass timber‘s potential for use in a variety of architectural projects.
Mass-timber products, such as cross-laminated timber (CLT) and glued laminated timber (glulam), are growing in popularity in architecture as they can offer a low-carbon alternative to commonplace materials including steel and concrete.
They also help to bring a natural aesthetic to buildings, supporting the principles of biophilia that can boost occupant wellbeing.
