Autodesk Redshift features WholeTrees project in Lake Oswego, OR

Inspired Design Give Trees a New Life

'When the construction of a new middle school near Portland, OR, called for the removal of a number of trees on-site, the project team came up with a sustainable—and striking—solution: Repurpose the tree trunks as structural columns throughout the building. Construction giant Skanska, Pacific Northwest firm Mahlum Architects, and Madison, WI-based company WholeTrees Structures collaborated to select, scan, and install the community’s beloved trees in the school’s interior and exterior. Watch the video to learn how they did it.'
