WASHINGTON, Feb. 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- WoodWorks - Wood Products Council has announced the winners of its 2021 Wood Design Awards, which celebrate excellence in wood building design and spotlight its continued rise in popularity across the U.S. Awards, are an opportunity to recognize building designers for their skill and ingenuity, and to showcase projects that demonstrate the attributes of wood that make it so appealing.

"This year's award winners epitomize the innovation, resilience, and flexibility required for projects to flourish in a changing world. We're excited to see design and development teams approaching projects holistically, with buildings that respond uniquely to their communities. From one of the most environmentally advanced education buildings in the southeast to a historic winery in Napa, CA, wood continues to demonstrate its value as a nimble and modern building material, ushering in new precedents and challenging the public's perception of its role in the built world," said WoodWorks President and CEO, Jennifer Cover. "A few of this year's winning projects were completed in 2020 despite obstacles caused by the global pandemic. Through this lens, we are more inspired than ever by the achievements in wood design—from the quality of building systems to the expressiveness of the structures."
