Emerge is a 100-sf structure designed to hold small gatherings of teachers and students visiting Bauman Tree Farm. Through its Forests Today & Forever program, the farm promotes forest stewardship and education, each year welcoming up to 2,000 visitors. Emerge is located within the forest to draw students into contact with new and old growth trees. The floor and walls are made from CLT, and the roof is a combination of CLT, glulam and dimension lumber. The structure is clad on the roof and sides with a simple build-up of CLT, shingles and timber siding. Emerge was designed to provide an aesthetic narrative that allows visitors to appreciate the project’s relationship to forestry production in the Pacific Northwest. It is the third in a series of five projects for the farm, which collectively demonstrate diverse uses of timber in a range of forestry settings.
