2018-2019 Timber in the City Winners

  
The Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) is pleased to announce TIMBER IN THE CITY 3: Urban Habitats Competition for the 2018-2019 academic year. The competition is a partnership between the Binational Softwood Lumber Council (BSLC), ACSA and the School of Constructed Environments (SCE) at Parsons School of Design. The program is intended to engage students, working individually or in teams, to imagine the transformation of our existing cities through sustainable buildings from renewable resources, offering expedient affordable construction, innovating with new and traditional wooden materials, and designing healthy living and working environments. This is the third competition in this TIMBER IN THE CITY series, and focuses this year on the interrelationship between housing, healthy, early childhood education and climate change.
