6th Annual TimberFever goes virtual this year!
TIMBERFEVER DESIGN-BUILD COMPETITION: Sep 24-27, 2020
Welcome to TimberFever 2020!
TimberFever is a design competition that started in Toronto in 2015 for students in architecture and engineering programs across Canada. Every year, students gather to design and build their structures which are then put on public display.
This year, for the first time, the competition will be virtual and will allow students from across Canada and the United States to participate. It’s a 4-day competition, from September 24 to 27, 2020.
If you enjoy design, like a challenge and want to meet fellow students, we want to hear from you! Check out the Event Info to find out if you qualify and then fill out the application form. If you are selected, you will be requested to confirm your participation and attend a pre-competition online tutorial.
Practicing architects and engineers are invited as mentors to provide assistance and guidance for each team’s design during the design charette: A perfect opportunity for participants to grow their network and practice their professional communication skills.
Teams are given a design brief, limited material, and limited time. Mentors assist teams to help interpret the design brief requirements and criteria. Participants will be able to apply the knowledge they have learned from school and push creative limits.
Congratulations to our 2019 Winners!
“It’s about having fun and also learning a lot about the practical aspects of construction. Within our faculty we don’t get that much practical experience.”
“Our idea was to make it not look like a box, so we made an octagon, and just for the look of it we made it slope shaped. We don’t know if they’re going to hold out to the specific force they’re going to apply.”
TimberFever would not be possible without the help of our generous sponsors. View all sponsors.
