Join us for a special panel discussion exploring the wide world of mass timber design and construction, coinciding with the opening of our new exhibition, ReFramed: The Future of Cities in Wood.
This program is FREE with advanced registration. Both In-Person & Virtual options are available. Following the panel discussion, attendees will be able to view the new exhibit.
Mass timber brings many advantages to architecture and construction by virtue of its prefabricated versatility, relative light weight, low embodied carbon, and natural beauty. It is the only commonly used building material that grows back and has shown to provide health and wellness benefits for those who spend their days immersed in wooden environs. Best of all, the United States and Canada have abundant forestlands that are managed for long-term sustainable harvest. What else can wood do? Find out at this presentation and spirited discussion with leaders in mass timber design, engineering, construction, and testing.
ReFramed: The Future of Cities in Wood and associated “Talking Timber” lecture series are created in partnership with the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) and with the support of presenting sponsor the Softwood Lumber Board.

Friday March 17th is a night of fun at our Open Haus! This month’s theme is Starkbierfest! We will have German Bier on tap and food for purchase!
After the debauchery of Faschingszeit (carnival season), we have started into Fastenzeit (lent). Fortify yourself for this time of austereness by trying some “liquid food” – the genius invention of 17th century Paulaner monk Salvator who decided to help his fasting brothers by brewing a batch of “strong beer” which was rich in nutrients and calories.
Our Open Haus is a great way to meet new friends, or bring your friends and introduce them to the Haus! This event is located in our popular 2nd Floor Brauhaus.
Free parking at 5/3 Bank after 6:00 PM located at Western and Gunnison
