Whether you're a seasoned architect, engineer, or simply curious about mass timber as a structural material, this event offers an insightful exploration of the evolving landscape of building materials.

This event is a collaboration between CLF Toronto and the Mass Timber Institute.

This event will be held in-person at DIALOG Toronto’s studio located at Suite 500 - 35 John Street, Toronto, Ontario. (Entrance at 35 John Street elevators only). Doors open at 5:30pm, event starts promptly at 6pm.


Aryan Rezaei Rad, Assistant Professor Department of Civil & Mineral Engineering

The overarching theme of Professor Rad’s academic activities is to advance sustainability and digitalization in building technology and structural engineering and foster the associated state-of-the-art knowledge in research, teaching, and technology transfer.

Professor Rad’s research is located at the interface of multi-scale experimental and computational methods. With a particular focus on the structural engineering aspects, his research integrates advanced digital fabrication technologies and human-machine interactive design with eco-friendly construction materials (i.e. timber and wood-based products) to embrace new design frameworks and principles for sustainable structural systems.
