Wood is nature’s most remarkable resource, embedded in the history, culture and life of humans worldwide. For the architecture world it is ingenious: malleable and at the same time resilient, fully recyclable and environmentally friendly as it reduces greenhouse gases, universally applicable and locally available. Today, new processing technologies extend the spectrum of its possible applications and the combinability with other building materials, enabling innovative technical and design solutions. In short, anything is possible when it comes to timber, whatever designers conceive can be realized. The traditional building material has become ultra-contemporary and increasingly cutting-edge, offering exciting possibilities for architectural design.
