WSE Seminar Series: Judith Sheine,

Mass Timber Demonstration Projects

Wednesday, January 24, 2018 12:00 PM

The University of Oregon has been developing designs demonstrating new possibilities for mass timber
construction. Some of these are partnerships with governmental organizations and all show what the
architectural possibilities can be using new advanced timber products to make sustainable structures. These
design projects illustrate how mass timber can be used in building types previously built of concrete and steel,
including parking structures, large cantilevered canopies and significant civic buildings.


Judith Sheine is a Professor in the Department of Architecture at the University of Oregon. She is the Director of Design for the TallWood Design Institute, a collaboration between the University of Oregon’s College of Design and Oregon State University’s Colleges of Forestry and Engineering focused on the advancement of timber manufacturing and design. Sheine is also an award winning architect whose projects have been published internationally and she has been recognized as the leading authority on the work of R.M. Schindler; her publications on the architect include R.M. Schindler (Phaidon Press, 2001) and her most recent book, Schindler, Kings Road and Southern California Modernism (University of California Press, 2012), co-authored with Robert Sweeney.
