Timber City

Timber City aims to challenges the notion that wood is an antiquated building material. The exhibition demonstrates the many advantages offered by cutting-edge methods of timber construction, including surprising strength, fire resistance, sustainability and beauty.

Curated and designed by Yugon Kim and Tomomi Itakura, founding partners of the Boston-based architectural design firm ikd, the exhibition’s immersive installation will feature numerous architectural models, dramatic prefabricated wood walls, and large-scale samples of mass timber. Stories will highlight recent innovations of timber technology, especially cross-laminated timber, known as CLT, and draw attention to the recent boom in timber construction worldwide.
