On November 18th, Proscenium’s Hugh Cochlin (Principal) will be speaking at the annual Wood Solutions Conference (November 16-20) hosted by Wood WORKS! BC. This year all the sessions will be virtual.
Hugh’s session, “The Material is the Message,” looks at the connection between material and brand for commercial projects, with the new timber-frame MEC Vancouver building as an example. He will dive into the use of wood as both an aesthetic and structural choice, touch on sustainability concerns (is wood always a sustainable choice?) and give a virtual tour of the building and its innovative design solutions.
