In the larger Housing Project sector is Jackson Clement Burrows’ student housing for La Trobe University. With two arcing wings, 624 student units and some facade aspects reflecting the colours of the plantings across the Melbourne bush campus, it is Australia’s biggest engineered-timber construction to date. It is also mostly empty at present. LMN Architects’ mass timber structure for Founders Hall at the University of Washington Foster School of Business has topped out. The 85,000-square-foot structure, expected to be completed in the summer of 2022, frames the northeast edge of the school’s historic Denny Yard, an open space at the heart of the original campus plan. It expands the Foster School of Business education complex while improving connections to the surrounding area.
