Chester Weir leads design efforts at Katerra for the Mass Timber Component Design Group, developing scalable solutions for mid and high-rise multi-family and commercial projects. His work is focused on the opportunities afforded by tall timber building codes, which have been pro-actively adopted in the Pacific Northwest where he works.
Based in Seattle for over 15 years, Chester has worked for generalist design practices, contributing to civic, institutional, performing arts, and mixed-use projects.
Chester received a Bachelor of Arts in Art History from Wesleyan University and a Master of Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania.
