Kevin Flanagan speaking to New York Times Journalist Laura Latham
PLP’s Timber Tower’s research, developed in partnership with the Centre for Natural and Material Innovations at the University of Cambridge, and engineering firm Smith and Wallwork, looks towards creating new design potentials with timber buildings, rather than simply copying the forms of steel and concrete construction. The transition to timber construction may have a wider positive impact on urban environments and built form, and offers opportunities not only to rethink the aesthetics of buildings, but also the structural methodologies informing their design as well. PLP is currently working on further proposals for a 31 storey timber building for a site in Western Europe.
