Timberfever’s 10th anniversary!

TimberFever is returning September 12-15, 2024.
Applications for mentorship are now open!

Welcome to TimberFever 2024!

TimberFever® is a design competition that first launched 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.

The competition was held virtually in 2020-21, and students from across Canada and the United States participated in the competition remotely.

Visit TimberFever Virtual Village from 2021 and 2020.

Valuable Skills


Teams are given a design brief 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.

Participant Testimonials


“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.”


-J.G., Student Participant, Architectural Science


“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.”


-A.A., Student Participant, Civil Engineering


TimberFever would not be possible without the help of our generous sponsors. View all sponsors.
