7 Award-worthy Designs
A Great Body of Work
Beyond the hours and energy we pour into our work, the process of selecting projects to submit to the jury for the AIA 2020 project awards and pulling together the text and images to submit was no small investment. Before we were notified of this year's wins we were already celebrating the fact that we had an excellent body of work to choose from this year, we ultimately determined seven of our projects worthy of submitting.
What’s next for higher education — and your office building — in a post-COVID world?
Everyone I know, and likely everyone you know, is currently asking themselves, “What’s next?” As the new Market Director for Luckett & Farley’s Higher Education Design Studio, I’ve been thinking a lot about how COVID-19 has already changed campus life and how universities prepare for the future.

THE 4 WS OF CROSS LAMINATED TIMBER
What exactly is cross laminated timber?
Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is a new generation of engineered wood which has been gaining popularity in the US thanks to building code updates and fire rated testing performances. CLT is defined as a new class of timber products known as massive or “mass” timber. CLT panels consist of several layers of lumber boards stacked crosswise (typically at 90 degrees) and glued together. A cross section of a CLT panel has at least three glued layers of boards placed in orthogonally alternating orientation to neighboring layers (see below). Prefabricated wall and floor panels provide an alternative to concrete, steel, and other wood framing methods. CLT is similar to plywood but with distinctively thicker lamination.

With Luckett & Farley serving as the interior designers for the project it was great to see everyone’s reaction to Louisville’s newest hotel and Kentucky’s first rooftop bar.
