Year: 2017
Status: Built
Team: reSAWN Timber, Paul Coughlin, Michelle Schneider, Ailin Wang
Partnering with reSAWN Timber, the trade show booth formally quotes the traditional idea of housing mass, a simple a-frame vernacular. The booth is made entirely out of solid wood, and includes exterior siding and roof cladding made with AJI shou sugi ban Accoya. The booth highlights the seamless transition between the siding and roof cladding. On the interior, the light color tone blends with unfinished Glu-Laminated timber studs, which accents the powder coated steel collar ties.
