Wooden high-rise buildings have become reality. So have design projects taking on a life-cycle perspective working with a no-waste principle, and public spaces or even towns that take on the challenges of sustainable development for all citizens.
The projects presented in the Woodlife Sweden exhibition are all facing the looming paradigm shift in the construction industry, where wood as the only renewable building material plays a key role.
The exhibition presents 40 projects, in various scales and from all over Sweden. They have been selected to visualise how architecture, design and urbanism can help reduce the climate impact of buildings and products, and impact future development in line with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The exhibition Woodlife Sweden was produced by the Swedish Institute and Architects Sweden in collaboration with Swedish Wood, the Swedish Wood Award and the Swedish Forest Industries Federation in 2020.
