Andrew Waugh is a founding director of Waugh Thistleton Architects, a British firm established in 1997 alongside Anthony Thistleton. In 2009, they completed Murray Grove, the world’s first nine-story mass timber building, located in London. As a pioneer and advocate for sustainable, engineered wood in architecture, Waugh has dedicated his practice to developing efficient, aesthetically pleasing, and ambitious architectural solutions that minimize resource use. Following Waugh’s presentation, he will engage in a conversation with Andrew Bernheimer, an architect and educator at Parsons School of Design. In 2015, Bernheimer edited “Timber in the City” (ORO). They will reflect on the early history of Mass Timber in North America as it learned from Europe and discuss where we stand today.
