Metsä Wood, architects and LSBU students challenge the perceptions of wood construction
Metsä Wood together with
London South Bank University (LSBU) launched an innovative design project for architectural students at LSBU.
Students were challenged to identify how timber, (as a more cost effective and flexible building material), could be used to restore old or iconic buildings in London. The idea being that communities can be cost effectively refurbished rather than torn down and rebuilt from scratch.
The project was designed to challenge perceptions of the next generation of architects so that timber is seen as a true alternative in everything from structures to exteriors and its potential for the city buildings of the future.
On this site you will find the introductions to the best designs.
