TIMBER IN THE CITY 4: Urban Habitats Competition

Registration date:


Submission date:




The competition challenges participants to interpret, invent, and deploy numerous methods of building systems, with a focus on innovations in wood design on a real site. For thousands of years, solid wood has been used as a building material. Modern timber products and systems have greatly expanded the potential uses of this historic material. Timber is an ideal green building material: it is well suited for a broad range of structural and aesthetic applications, it offers economical construction and high-performance characteristics in strength and energy efficiency, and wood is an economic driver to maintain forests and protect jobs in rural communities.Program
A multi‐ and mixed-use building in a mid‐rise dense urban community.AwardsWinning students and their faculty sponsors will receive cash prizes totaling $40,000 USD. The design jury will meet in the summer of 2022 to select winning projects and honorable mentions. Winners and their faculty sponsors will be notified of the competition results directly. A list of winning projects will be posted on the ACSA website (www.acsa-arch.org).Eligibility
Because the support of SLB is largely derived from companies whose markets are mainly in the U.S., the Timber in the City Student Competition is open to students and/or student teams from ACSA Full and Candidate Member Schools, as well as ACSA Affiliate Members Schools from the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.For more information, visit https://www.acsa-arch.org/competitions/2022-timber-competition/
