CPD dates for our diary: Timber Rising – Vertical Visions for the Cities of Tomorrow

 

Roca Gallery – London SW6 2PY – 9th February to 9th May 2018

The exhibition focuses on the most significant timber and glulam projects carried out to date world-wide, interviewing engineers, architects and designers looking forward to where wood will ultimately determine the shape and form new types of buildings and spaces.

The exhibition showcases examples of completed projects which sit alongside more ambitious concept and research proposals, showcasing what is possible today, and what may be possible in the future – with changing building codes and new thinking by developers, governments and the construction industry – for the cities of tomorrow.
