“Wood stands the test of time as a nimble and sustainable building material. From a public library in D.C. to the first mass timber hotel in Texas to a ferry terminal in Washington, this year’s winning projects showcase wood’s flexibility on scales small and large,” said WoodWorks president and CEO, Jennifer Cover. “Beyond the technical innovations achieved in these buildings, they are simply beautiful to look at. They inspire tenants, passersby, and the industry at large while demonstrating how the design and construction community is responding to the need for more sustainable construction.”

Nominations from across the country were evaluated by an independent jury that included Jordan Komp, VP and office director, Thornton Tomasetti; Steve Durham, executive VP and director of collegiate, Kirksey Architects; and Thang Do, CEO/principal, Aedis Architects.
