Williamson Chong, the architecture and design office of Betsy Williamson, Shane Williamson, and Donald Chong, creates work that situates digital fabrication and wood construction in a broader cultural context, linking together theories of design and technology with ecological aspects of building and construction. 

The work in Living Wood exhibition explores wood's material history by extracting artifacts from a digital exploration of the effect of mass movements in the landscape on the growth and form of trees.
