PhD Scholarship: Tall Timber Buildings
A joint opportunity exists with the University of Queensland's Centre for Research on Architectural Design (ROAD), within the School of Architecture, and the School of Civil Engineering, to conduct research on medium-to-high-rise timber-framed (tall timber) buildings. Applications are currently being accepted for a Scholarship in a Research Higher Degree program for a promising candidate interested in pursuing research on an advanced level.
The use of timber in building structures has long been a part of Australian architectural and engineering tradition, however contemporary practice and regulatory building codes have often restricted the continuation and development of this unique structural typology beyond a low-rise scale. Building on emerging international research investigating the use of timber in the structure of medium- to high-rise architecture, this project will seek to test the viability of its reintroduction through design research by proposing a benchmark project that illustrates the re-emergence of this building technology. The scholarship will be a collaboration guided by experts from both the field of architecture and engineering, exploring the implementation of cutting edge structural technologies that have the potential to revolutionise the environmental impact of the architectural and construction industries.
