Timber design pioneers explores how collaboration can drive innovation in design and construction.

 

Chapter 3, Designing for well-being, features three very different and remarkable projects:

  • Maggie's Oldham
  • Dyson Centre for Neonatal Care
  • Moneypenny HQ

 

Chapter 3 includes interviews with:

  • Alex de Rijke, dRMM
  • Mark Moppett, Booth King
  • Hester Brough, Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios
  • Kay Hartmann, KLH UK
  • Phil Hepworth, AEW Architects
  • Leon Furness, Furness Partnership

 

An inspiring aspect of this publication is the willingness of timber experts across the design team to learn from each other. The ability to recognise that the expertise of individuals in the project team can help to resolve some of the toughest technical problems has to be admired. Effective collaboration has enabled timber to reach its highest potential and that should be celebrated.
