PODCAST Timber on the Rise: The First Timber High-Rise in the U.S.

Thomas Robinson, founder of LEVER Architecture, discusses the firm's Framework building, slated to be the first timber high-rise in the United States.

Thomas Robinson made headlines in 2015 when his proposal for a 12-story, CLT, mixed-use Frameworkbuilding won the U.S. Tall Wood Building Prize Competition hosted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Softwood Lumber Board and Binational Softwood Lumber Council trade groups.

In this episode, ARCHITECT talks to Robinson about the challenges when construction innovation outpaces codes and the benefits of working in the firm's self-designed CLT office building, Albina Yard.
