Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum (2015 R+D Awards Citation)
For the Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum, Teeple Architects designed the triangulated structure and its exposed timber skeleton—a pivoted A-frame in which as many as six structural members can converge at one joint. Teeple Architects created custom laminated plywood nodes to support their angular timber structure and design.
