This Integrative Studio will be based on the competition brief of the TIMBER IN THE CITY 3: Urban Habitats Competition by The Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA). The competition is a partnership between the Binational Softwood Lumber Council (BSLC), The Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) and the School of Constructed Environments (SCE) at Parsons School of Design. The program is intended to engage students 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 the TIMBER IN THE CITY series, and this year focuses on the interrelationship between housing, healthy, early childhood education and climate change.
