Wood is simply a clever material in a climate crisis. But that is not everything. Wood is also 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 digitalised and energy efficient to build with, wood’s naturally smart properties offer healthy interiors, low-maintenance exteriors, and spaces for happy lives.
Wood encompasses nine recent, wood-based projects by the renowned Danish architecture studio Vandkunsten Architects, who has shaped the contemporary use of wood in Nordic architecture for over five decades. Projects include the flexible housing at Lisbjerg Bakke, the Arctic House in Greenland, and Senior cohousing at Diakonissestiftelsen.
