Solid Wood Materials and Concepts

Joseph Mayo

Joseph Mayo practices architecture in the Pacific Northwest where he concentrates on materiality, technology, and form for a regionally appropriate building culture. He has worked on a variety of building types, ranging from schools, student housing, university buildings, and hospitals. Working with a City of Seattle Department of Planning and Development (DPD) Advisory Committee, he led an investigation to use wood in applications that go beyond current building codes. He has also been a jury member for wood design awards, served as Regional Associate Director for the American Institute of Architects (AIA), Young Architect Forum (YAF) Chair at AIA Seattle, and has assisted in teaching courses and served on architecture critiques at universities around the Pacific Northwest. Author affiliation details are correct at time of print publication.
