Around the world, the construction industry begins to understand the value of wood, a renewable material that grows just outside our doorstep. What role will wood play for sustainable architecture, industry, science, economy and societies? It is about time for Sweden to look into the process from plant to product! These issues are dealt with in WOOD 2013, which opens at Virserum Art Museum 5th May 2013.
At the international conference at Umea School of Architecture you can listen to the idea of some of the foremost in Europe on wood and wooden architecture. Walter Unterrainer, Hubert Reiss, Herman Kaufmann, Véronique Klimine and Pekka Heikkinen are some of the speakers. Wood and wooden architecture in sustainable cityplanning is another issue.
