Overview

Grow Your City! Mass Timber Design and Research presents new research and design work with Mass Timber, a new construction technology, well-known in Europe, but relatively unfamiliar in the United States. Leading the Mass Timber design dialogue in the US, the author, Susan Jones, an architect in Seattle, Washington, has been pioneering the new, innovative use of wood over the past six years, since she built her own family's house from cross-laminated timber in 2015 in a neighborhood in Seattle. The book presents her Seattle firm, her family, and her University of Washington students' years of research and design. Opening with the story of three generations of her family's own sustainable forest practices, the book presents research into Pacific Northwest forestry, timber and Cross-Laminated Timber manufacturing practices, to carbon analysis and carbon comparisons between standard building construction assemblies and technologies. AUTHOR: Susan Jones, FAIA, LEED BD+C, architect, is owner of atelierjones, an architecture, urban, and ecodesign firm. Founded in 2003 in Seattle, the firm's design award winning work brings design excellence, research, and community engagement to new sustainable strategies and buildings including groundbreaking work with Mass Timber. atelierjones recently completed the first CLT structure permitted in Seattle in June 2015: a single family house using CLT as structure and interior finish material, and a church, using CLT as a 40' high, interior non-structural wall completed in March 2016. Both are two of the first CLT structures completed in the US. A nationally known expert on Mass Timber, she is the AIA National Representative to the ICC Tall Timber Code Committee, has taught multiple design studios on Mass Timber Design, and has spoken across the US on Mass Timber. atelierjones is now completing two modular CLTSchools to be completed in spring of 2017. A third generation native of Washington State, Susan became a Fellow of the AIA in 2010, and has been working for architects since she was sixteen.
