Exhibitions Berlin, Germany August 25, 2018 - October 11, 2018

Taking place in Berlin’s Aedes Architekture Forum, this exhibition by the Swedish Institute and the Swedish architects association “Sveriges Arkitekter” presents contemporary projects in timber architecture using different examples of building typologies, including schools, housing, and cultural institutions.

Growing awareness about the importance of sustainable building and the use of existing resources have given timber construction renewed relevance, not only in Sweden. The material impresses with its environmentally friendly properties and is easy to process and transport – making it ideal for prefabrication. This leads to significant reductions in building time and costs, while simplifying and expanding the design possibilities, not least by incorporating the latest digital technologies.
