Join Woodbury School of Architecture for a lecture by Andrew Tsay Jacobs, Matt Timmers and Austin Baker. Their presentation will explore the potential of mass timber construction and buildings in Los Angeles and high seismic regions.
Mass timber high-rise construction is gaining momentum in the United States. Developers are finding that, along with its beautiful aesthetic and sustainable appeal, mass timber is a cost-competitive and schedule-friendly structural material. This presentation reviews a study demonstrating the code-compliant design of a high-rise mass timber apartment tower in Los Angeles. Using the city’s existing 20-story, reinforced concrete Museum Tower as a basis for comparison, the study examines architectural, structural, fire performance, cost, schedule improvements and trade-offs of the mass timber design compared to the original building.
