Works has announced the winners of its 2021 Wood Design Awards, celebrating innovation and trends in wood building designs. The annual contest recognizes building designers for their skill and ingenuity, and to showcase projects that demonstrate the attributes of wood that make it so appealing.
“This year’s award winners epitomize the innovation, resilience, and flexibility required for projects to flourish in a changing world,” Jennifer Cover, president and CEO of WoodWorks, said in a statement.
“We’re excited to see design and development teams approaching projects holistically, with buildings that respond uniquely to their communities. From one of the most environmentally advanced education buildings in the southeast to a historic winery in Napa, Calif., wood continues to demonstrate its value as a nimble and modern building material, ushering in new precedents and challenging the public’s perception of its role in the built world.”
WoodWorks is a non-profit organization that provides education and free technical support related to the design, engineering and construction of commercial and multi-family wood buildings in the U.S.
