Possibilities of wood construction
As a leading supplier of wood products, Metsä Wood knows from experience that Nordic premium wood is the best renewable raw material in the world. When used right, it saves money, time and nature.
To challenge preconceptions and explore the possibilities of wood construction, we’ve started a project called Plan B. In it, we’ll plan how to build iconic architectural designs out of wood. Our first case was the Roman Colosseum. The second case is big – Big Apple big: how to build a wooden skyscraper. We chose the Empire State Building.
We’re not saying that everything should be built of wood. We are saying that wood should always be considered as a true alternative in everything from structures to exteriors.
