Entries for the Australian Timber Design Awards are rolling in as we approach the submission cut-off date (17 June). Judging by these entries, 2011 will be a very good year for the Awards. The standout feature of entries thus far is sustainability: we've never seen such attention paid to the environmental benefits of designing in wood. (You'll see this for yourself when voting opens for the People's Choice Award in July.)

If you're not among these early entrants but you have a project that you think could be a winner, here's a tip: get your entry in before the end of May. It might take you some time to put your project details into our online submission facility, so don't wait until the last minute. And if you start early, we'll have more time in which to help you with your entry (just give us a call).

Want to see what it's all about? Have a look at our entry categories and last year's winners. And when you're ready to start on your online entry, sign up for the 2011 Awards. (You may add to and modify your entry up until 17 June.)

Big trends in timber design E-mail

Over the past twelve years, the Australian Timber Design Awards has witnessed a sea change in timber design. If you're thinking of entering the Awards, it's worth being aware of the five biggest trends making up this change:

  1. Sustainability. Public demand for low carbon footprint buildings has seen unprecedented innovation in Australian timber design. Projects such as Melbourne's Grocon building are the way of the future, achieving carbon neutrality through a rich spectrum of timber products.

  2. Complex design. Architects are increasingly using timber in technically complex designs. See, for instance, this innovative use of paper-backed veneer from 2010.

  3. Engineered wood products innovation. Designers are recognising the structural and aesthetic qualities of a new generation of engineered wood products -- products that allow rapid construction of sturdy timber-based buildings. Projects such as The National Portrait Gallery, from 2009, indicate the potential of these innovations.

  4. Building taller. Waugh Thistleton's acclaimed nine storey Stadhaus exemplifies the use of structural timber in mid-rise buildings. This recent trend is also evidenced by the growing popularity of two or three storey commercial and multi-residential timber framed buildings.

  5. Broader palettes. Entries into the Awards have featured increasingly varied timber palettes. Designers now favour native Australian timber species and naturally coloured -- rather than dyed -- veneers and panels.
