AN Best of Design Awards Honourable Mention for Zero Carbon Hybrid Timber Supertall Tower

December 15, 2022

We’re delighted to share that the Zero Carbon Hybrid Timber Supertall Prototype has been recognized with an Honourable Mention in the Unbuilt – Conceptual Design category at the Architect’s Newspaper Best of Design Awards.

Now in its tenth year, the annual Architect’s Newspaper Best of Design Awards is a project-based awards program that showcases notable projects of great buildings, unbuilt proposals, interiors, and installations in 39 Best of Design categories. Entries are judged based on strength of presentation, evidence of innovation, creative use of new technology, sustainability, and good design.

Every year, winning projects are featured on the Architect’s Newspaper website. This year, projects are also being published in a specially printed issue of AN’s Best of Design 2022, with the Zero Carbon Hybrid Timber Supertall Prototype included.

The unique building system is designed with the patent-pending Hybrid Timber Floor System (HTFS), which combines Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) with steel and concrete to build a zero-carbon tower that can reach 105 floors. The floor system’s safe and spatially efficient floor plates have added to the benefits of applying mass timber design to buildings of any height. Set to revolutionize how mass timber buildings are designed and constructed, the hybrid timber tower received recognition for its conceptual design.

Congratulations to the entire project team on this achievement!
