In 2017, wood species from endangered or threatened forests continue to be used in design projects around the world and here in the U.S.
Wilsonart has announced a new national initiative entitled Understanding Wood: Sourcing Against the Grain to help architects and designers understand the complexities of endangered woods and available tools to ensure compliance with sourcing regulations and protecting their businesses.
The initiative launches with a National Day of Learning event.
On October 18, a first-of-its-kind one-day educational event will take place at the Center for Architecture. Architects, designers and media across the country are invited to participate.
Two lunch & learn sessions that offer 1 HSW: Health, Safety and Welfare Continuing Education (CEU) Credit for IDCEC or AIA will be held at 12:30 p.m. EDT and 3:00 p.m. EDT.
Those in NYC are welcomed to attend either session in the Center for Architecture’s Silman Room and registration is required.
Both sessions will also be livestreamed and those outside of NYC are encouraged to sign up and attend virtually.
