Wood that wows: Teeple Architects' Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum
Wood is the ultimate sustainable building material, and right now there is a lot of it to be used, thanks to the Mountain Pine Beetle. Steven Teeple built the new Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum in Alberta, Canada out of big sticks of beetle-kill timber, with as many as six pieces coming together at a single point. But the real wow factor is in the connections at those points where the wood comes together; usually a connector would be made of steel.
