Building with Mass Timber in the City

Consider it the White Pine Series of Architectural Monographs for the 21st century.
Timber in the City is a new book by Andrew Bernheimer that calls for a re-evaluation of how and why wood is used in construction in America. It’s all about a new phrase in construction: mass timber.
“The idea is that wood now is a new technology that we can take out of elemental construction to a much larger scale – to the use of wood in mass-scale production,” he says. “It refers to both the scale of the wood and the scale of production.”
