What is Open Source Wood?

Open Source Wood is an open ideas platform to foster modular wood construction. Open source in wood construction fosters innovation and increases knowledge.

Currently, not nearly enough knowledge about modular wood design and building is shared. There is plenty of innovation, but it’s often not so easy to find. By sharing our best ideas and solutions openly we will deliver significantly increased growth. All shared elements are licensed CC BY 4.0. Open Source Wood has been initiated by Metsä Wood.
