AUSTRALIAN architect members of the global organisation Architects Declare are having their say on the National Construction Code updates to make sure every new home – without costing more – will raise the required standards of sustainability.

Think Wood is a communications campaign that provides commercial, multifamily and single-family home design and build resources to architects, developers, and contractors.

Recently Think Wood announced its 10 most popular timber construction projects of 2023. Across the USA, wood construction is capturing the spotlight and inspiring more architects, engineers, and developers to create and build even more innovative wood buildings. Think Wood profiled several of these boundary-pushing structures this year—from nature-focused multifamily residences to cultural spaces rooted in traditional building practices to public spaces reimagined and elevated with wood. Whether they used light-frame, mass timber, or a combination of the two, our top 10 project profiles of 2023 showcase the best of the design and construction community’s creativity, design excellence, and commitment to sustainability through the use of natural, renewable building materials.
