FSC Architecture Project Talks

Dezeen and FSC present online lecture series with leading architects working with sustainable wood

Dezeen has partnered with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) to present a new series of Architecture Project Talks, which will see Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios and Chris Precht deliver presentations about key projects that are built using FSC-certified wood.

The two webinars, which count towards continuing professional development (CPD) points for UK architects, feature Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios' Senate House building for the University of Bristol and Precht's modular Bert treehouse.

Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios completed a refurbishment of the University of Bristol's Senate House building earlier this year. The building acts as a hub for students, offering both social spaces and support services, and prominently makes use of timber slats throughout its interior.

Project architects Rose Hart and Nick Hodges will discuss the design and delivery process, the use of wood throughout the project, and how the studio approached designing a contemporary mixed-use education space.

Austrian architecture studio Precht recently completed Bert, a modular treehouse shaped like a tree trunk with large round windows.

Chris Precht, who runs the practice alongside his partner Fei Tang Precht, will deliver a lecture on how a modular structure with a cylindrical form can be built from wood, and how the project's form subverts the self-seriousness of the architectural profession by drawing on characters from the animated film Minions.
