Wood's Up! The Rise of Timber Buildings – Exhibition at Aedes Architecture Forum

28 March, 2024

We are delighted to be part of the exhibition "Wood's Up! - The Rise of Timber Buildings" at the Aedes Architecture Forum.

In view of the climate crisis, wood has been experiencing a renaissance in the construction industry for several years. More and more clients and architects are turning to timber and hybrid timber construction also at all scales to conserve resources and reduce CO2 emissions. In addition to its flexibility, load-bearing capacity and prefabrication capabilities, timber offers advantages in terms of thermal insulation, health and aesthetics. The Wood's Up! exhibition at Aedes presents 16 realised and planned timber buildings of different typologies. Local structures, alternative financing models and ecological aspects play an important role in the selection of the international projects. The focus on sustainable hybrid timber construction also opens up perspectives for further new strategies and concepts for the future of this building material.
