North Hall mention in New York Times

Frank Lowenstein, Brian Donahue and David Foster write for the New York Times on how CLT can help solve the climate crisis. RISD’s recently completed North Hall is cited as a case-study. Read the full article HERE.

“Across North America, trees stand ready to help us solve the climate crisis. Trees remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store it in their wood. One way to respond to a challenge from the United Nations secretary general, António Guterres, to seek “bold action and much greater ambition” on climate change is to protect forests from development, improve forest management and use sustainably harvested wood to build tall buildings. This will allow us to pump carbon from the atmosphere and store it both in forests and in cities. It will also support rural economies, improve wildlife habitat and create more affordable housing. This opportunity arises from cross-laminated timber, or CLT.”
