An All-Timber Neighborhood in Berlin, Weißensee. This neighborhood is all about sustainable living for all generations and the social context of a neighborhood.

The result is an amazing reduction in carbon emissions but also a substantial reduction of the embodied carbon we usually see in our buildings.
- Understand the key features of mass timber construction
- Discuss the benefits of carbon reduction.
- Understand the relationship between mass timber and passive house
- Understand the guiding principles for designing high performance mass timber assemblies using the passive house principals
