Västerås’ old industrial harbour is being transformed into a new neighbourhood with nature at its heart. It is therefore fitting that Sweden’s tallest wooden-framed building (as of 2018), Kajstaden, sits in the entrance to the new development. All load-bearing elements of Kajstaden – its walls, floors, beams, and roof – are constructed from locally-sourced CLT, using 3m tall panels that reduce the need for cutting on site, and allow for all nine storeys to have high ceilings, creating spacious and light-filled living spaces.

As part of Finland’s centenary celebrations, Helsinki is now home to Oodi. It is a magnificent hybrid wooden construction and landmark that serves to refresh the city’s library services for 150 years to come.
The centrepiece of the library, which will serve as a flexible open public space for an estimated 10,000 daily visitors, is a gigantic wooden bridge structure that extends out towards the Finnish Parliament across the Citizens’ Square.

On the outskirts of Aarhus lies Lisbjerg Bakke, a 4,100m2 hybrid timber building and winner of the 2014 ‘sustainable social housing of the future’ competition.
In a joint venture between the architects and engineers, the full lifecycle of the building has been taken into consideration from the outset, with a flexible design that allows the reconfiguration of the building into new layouts or office space, and building components that can be easily upgraded.

Le bois, en tant que matériau, est au cœur de l'industrie de la construction. En plus de ses excellentes performances, le bois est une ressource renouvelable, pourvu qu’il soit issu de forêts gérées durablement. Partons à la découverte de ce matériau tendance à plus d’un titre, cette ressource hors du commun.
Pourquoi choisir le bois et à quelles conditions ?

Norwegian architect Snøhetta has pledged to only design carbon-negative buildings, meaning their projects will generate more energy than they consume over their lifetime. "For the next 10 years, we have the ambition of having projects on the table that will become CO2 negative in the cradle-to-cradle definition," said Kjetil Thorsen (co-founder of Snøhetta) "This means we have to understand the embodied energies and all the materials used."
