London’s Murray Grove was the world’s tallest modern timber residential building when it was completed in 2009, initiating a new timber architecture trend in Europe and elsewhere. The building’s designer, Andrew Waugh of Waugh Thistleton Architects, uses the project as a case study to talk about his practice's pioneering work in tall timber building and construction. The program is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Timber City, which will be on view before the lecture.
