​Heavy Timber Aesthetic

The heavy timber structural system is the organizing principle for the architecture.  But it is much more, because it magnifies the design concepts of the community.  

It seems fitting that a community whose development principle is Integration with Nature, that the backbone of the architecture for that community also be an elemental natural resource.

It also seems fitting that a community whose purpose is the social and character strengthening of its youngest residents, that the architectural aesthetic symbolize this strength, this virtue, as does the robust structural system of the heavy timber.
