Antony Wood has been Executive Director of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat since 2006, responsible for the day-to-day running of the Council and steering in conjunction with the Board of Trustees, of which he is an ex-officio member. Based at the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, Antony is also a Research Professor in the College of Architecture at IIT, and a visiting professor of tall buildings at Tongji University Shanghai.  A UK architect by training, his field of speciality is the design, and in particular the sustainable design, of tall buildings. We talk to Antony about the way tall timber buildings are transforming the urban habitat, and how a very large research project is encouraging the uptake of mass timber construction. Antony also shares his vision for what a mass timber city might look like and how you can contribute to the significant body of work being undertaken.
