SOLD OUT – Hard Hat Tour – Join AIA Miami for a tour of Atelier Mey’s innovative Coconut Grove project, “House In A Garden”
Join AIA Miami for a tour of Atelier Mey’s innovative Coconut Grove project. House In A Garden takes a bold approach by establishing the design objectives through the lens of ecology, material as resource, and energy and is the first CLT [cross-laminated timber] structure to be realized in Miami and Miami Dade.
Asserting wood as the sole structural approach re-establishes the connection between regional ecologies and renewable material resources through solid wood building products. The project’s pivotal design objective is the utilization of cross-laminated timber [CLT] panels as the construction methodology. The design team worked closely with regional manufacturers, structural engineers, and thermal analyses to develop innovative strategies that reduce material, energy, and carbon generation.
House In A Garden is committed to the use of Southern Yellow Pine, sourced in-state and manufactured in the southeast, materials regionally grown and processed for regional needs. The innovative envelope assembly exploits the CLT’s thermal performance and pre-manufactured precision processing to reduce construction timelines by streamlining the erection phase and on-site trade worker.
This project is still an active construction site. Hard Hats are not required, but attendees MUST wear closed toe shoes in order to enter the project site.
Once you make your reservation, you will be given the address of the project.
Space is limited! You must register to attend.
