Over the past several years, there has been a rise in mass timber construction around the world, demonstrating the strength, durability, and design flexibility of next-generation lumber technologies.
The following project images showcase recent mass timber buildings in North America, and how products like cross-laminated timber (CLT) are enabling designers to push beyond wood’s perceived boundaries, achieving building heights and spans that would have once required concrete, steel or masonry for structural support.
