Energy intensive. Relentlessly standardized. Devoid of any sense of place. Take everything that's wrong with heavy steel and concrete structures...
....and imagine the opposite. Chris is proud to be a project manager for WholeTrees' software development efforts, and their defacto R&D department. In that capacity, he developed the tools shown in this video. Video production assistance from Tim Coursen.
"WholeTrees Architecture & Structures enables visionary construction with convenient tools, connecting forests to building professionals and manufacturers. In calling this visionary construction, we're talking very literally. We're describing a building material supply chain with a clear line of sight from start to finish. By knowing where our buildings come from, we can build cleaner, faster, and cheaper. By realizing the most fundamental utility of a renewable material in commercial construction, we can improve forests, sequester carbon, create jobs, invigorate regional economies, and make beautiful buildings in the process."
