Vertical Living in Timber: How to Design for the 21st Century
- Roca London Gallery (How to reach us)
As part of the exhibition Timber Rising: Vertical Visions for the Cities of Tomorrow, we asked ‘Can the use of natural materials to build our cities help safeguard people from the effects of climate change, increased pollution, alienation and mental health issues?’
As urban densification and vertical housing become inevitable, we asked whether constructing with materials such as cross-laminated timber (CLT), in which nature is enhanced by technology, can offer sustainable solutions that also promote wellbeing.
