This year’s Maine Mass Timber Design Competition is intended to generate design ideas and test implementation of an emerging technology that hold specific promise for the state economy.

DESIGN ABSTRACT: Remote Mass Timber Wilderness Lodge
Maine Huts & Trails maintains a network of backcountry trails and remote wilderness lodges woven through the woods and mountains of western Maine that provide a unique opportunity to explore and discover this beautiful region. The goal of this year’s competition is to study and develop a design for a new hut on a established backcountry site, as well as to explore the implementation of mass timber construction technologies in a remote location. A detailed Design Brief is available here and response to questions will be posted to this site until the close of registration in August.
