MFA Selected to Participate in Inaugural Cohort for the New York City Mass Timber Studio

April 17, 2024

We are thrilled to announce that we have been selected to participate in the inaugural cohort for the New York City Mass Timber Studio through our work on the Brooklyn Public Library New Lots Branch in collaboration with Brooklyn Public Library, Mass Design Group, Envoie Projects, and Silman Structural Solutions. 

The first of its kind in New York City, the Mass Timber Studio program prioritizes the decarbonization of the built environment by supporting mass timber projects in their early phases. Projects selected for the inaugural cohort include those that provide community space, residential development, and adaptive reuse. 

The New Lots Library, located in East New York is one of the largest libraries in the BPL system, offering a diverse array of programs for all ages. We are now in Schematic Design, working closely with Brooklyn Public Library (BPL) and the community to explore opportunities to transform and expand the branch to better serve its present-day patrons as well as future generations.
