Toolkit for Using StoryWood
Created for architects, designers, and developers, this toolkit offers a lexicon with a clear delineation of the universe of wood available for use in their design plans. Different types of wood have different stories to tell, some richer than others, and there are benefits and challenges associated with each type. This toolkit will help designers identify, evaluate, and share the most interesting parts of a certain type of wood’s back story, and, more specifically, it will help to align material choices to achieve certifications, such as LEED or Living Building Challenge. In short, this toolkit provides designers with the information and tools needed to navigate the universe of wood products and find the unique and sustainable material that will meaningfully resonate with their vision for a finished design.
