An All-Timber Neighborhood in Berlin, Weißensee, Germany

Presented: by Christoph Deimel

Credits: 1 credit point (PHI)

Program Overview:

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

Learning Objectives:

  • 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
