Schneider Publishes on Mass Timber

Brett Schneider (Assistant Professor, Architecture) published, The Art and Craft of Mass Timber, in the Spring/Summer issue of the Harvard Design Magazine titled, Into the Woods.

The issue “treks into the woods to come to terms with its precarious status as habitat and resource, and to challenge assumptions about wood as material.” Schneider’s article traces the recent history of the use of mass timber in structures in North America over the last five year and explores the difference between incremental technical development prevalent in the field and the important role of unconventional design to change the conceptual use of a material.
