S&A Architectural Designer, Jillian Tomaselli a recipient of the Tai Soo Kim Traveling Fellowship is traveling throughout Europe visiting residential buildings in London, a nature center and museum in Helsinki, and an office building in Zurich. Jillian wrote, “We’ve learned from our conversations with the architects that there’s definitely a challenging learning curve involved the first time an office designs with CLT, but often those challenges are outweighed by the benefits, such as schedule, sustainability, etc.” Below are photographs Jillian has shared demonstrating a mixed use building and a CLT building under construction in London, part of a nature center in Helsinki, and the lobby of an office building in Zurich. Thank you, Jillian for sharing your experiences abroad with us.
