Register to attend

Join architect Lina Lahiri, a partner at Berlin-based Sauerbruch Hutton, as she outlines the firm’s experiences working with timber modules. A hallmark of Sauerbruch Hutton’s work is its exploration of technical and spatial innovation and the responsible use of existing resources of all kinds. Lahiri will share three timber-module projects done by the firm over the last few years, two of which are now built. Her presentation will be moderated by Roberto Damiani, Assistant Professor (Teaching Stream) at the Daniels Faculty.
