Awards Recognize Teams Driving Innovation in Wood Building Design

WoodWorks - Wood Products Council has announced the 2022 Wood Design Awards winners, celebrating excellence and innovation in wood building design and charting the material’s growing prevalence as a material of choice for designers and developers. The annual awards program recognizes building designers for their skill and ingenuity, and projects that demonstrate the attributes of wood that make it so appealing.  “Wood stands the test of time as a nimble and sustainable building material. From a public library in D.C. to the first mass timber hotel in Texas to a ferry terminal in Washington, this year’s winning projects showcase wood’s flexibility on scales small and large,” said WoodWorks President and CEO Jennifer Cover. “Beyond the technical innovations achieved in these buildings, they are simply beautiful to look at. They inspire tenants, passersby, and the industry at large — while demonstrating how the design and construction community is responding to the need for more sustainable construction.”  Nominations from across the country were evaluated by an independent jury that included:     Jordan Komp, VP and Office Director, Thornton Tomasetti, Milwaukee, WI     Steve Durham, Executive VP and Director of Collegiate, Kirksey Architects, Houston, TX     Thang Do, CEO/Principal, Aedis Architects, San Jose, CA  National award categories include:
