The winners of the 2022 Wood Design Awards were announced this morning by WoodWorks – Wood Products Council. The annual awards program celebrates excellence and innovation in wood building design, recognizing designers for their skill and ingenuity with the material.

Nominations from across the country were evaluated by an independent judging panel consisting of Jordan Komp, Vice President and Office Manager, Thornton, Tomasetti, Milwaukee, WI; Steve Durham, executive vice president and director of Collegiate, Kirksey Architects, Houston, TX; and Thang Do, CEO/Principal, Aedis Architects, San Jose, CA.

“Wood stands the test of time as an agile and durable building material. From a public library in DC to the first log hotel in Texas to a ferry terminal in Washington, this year’s winning projects showcase the flexibility of wood on both small and large scales,” said Jennifer Cover, President and CEO of WoodWorks.
