MTA Partner Carol Phillips recently contributed to an article released by Style at Home Magazine in their November Issue, with Forestry for the Future. The piece, entitled “Rooted in Sustainability”, is about the mass timber building industry with a particular focus on Limberlost Place, Moriyama Teshima Architects’ joint project with Acton Ostry Architects that is currently under construction at George Brown College’s Waterfront Campus in Toronto.
Carol Phillips, Partner-in-Charge of Limberlost Place and a leader in sustainable design, speaks of the many positive qualities of wood as a construction material, including beauty, strength, carbon sequestration, versatility and renewability. With Canada’s superior forest industry, the use of mass timber is not only an environmentally sustainable choice, but a smart one.
“As architects, we are gatekeepers to the materials in our built environment. We can, do, and should choose low-carbon materials and we can select those that are also beautiful”.
