Future People’s Palace – Remaking the Architecture of the Welfare State
Wood is simply a clever material in a climate crisis – but that is not it – wood is a living material and so are we, and there is a special relationship between the human body and the material. While technological developments make this low-tech material the most digitalized and energy efficient to build with, wood’s naturally smart properties offer healthy interiors, low-maintenance exteriors, and spaces for happy lives?
Vandkunsten Woodfeatures 9 recent wood-based projects by renowned Danish architecture studio Vandkunsten Architects who have shaped the contemporary use of wood in Nordic architecture over five decades. Projects include the flexible housing at Lisbjerg Bakke, the Arctic House in Greenland, and Senior Cohousing at Diakonissestiftelsen.
