Southern Ontario used to be covered by giant pines, all cleared to build British ships and to create farmland. Some of it has been reforested, notably the York Regional Forest, just north of Toronto, considered now to be "one of the most successful regenerations of a degraded landscape in North America."

DIALOG designed the Bill Fisch Forest Stewardship and Education Centre and explains its purpose:

It is conceived as a powerful teaching tool and living laboratory. The Bill Fisch Forest Stewardship and Education Centre will facilitate engagement opportunities and visibly integrate nature and innovative sustainable building practice into comprehensive education programming.

Being in a forest, it makes sense that it is a great demonstration of modern wood construction.
