Can the buildings that we live in come alive? Could such living buildings help us to create a healthier, more sustainable future? Could they become adaptive, resilient structures that care for the planet while empathizing, comforting and inspiring us? The Living Dialogs podcast brings together scholars and thinkers to collectively reflect on living architecture and its implications for our changing world.

Prefabrication in mass timber buildings is fast becoming a reality and, through digital design and manufacturing processes, it is having a disruptive effect on the building industry. In order to maintain BC’s lead in innovation in wood and to promote value added processes within the province, it is timely for BC to lead a symposium on the state-of-the-art in Wood Prefabricated Buildings. The symposium is meant to bring together architects, engineers and fabricators who are interested in the future of prefabrication in wood.
