Published: 07/12/2016 00:00

​Metsä Wood challenged architects and students around the world to push the boundaries of modern wood building design in the urban environment. Entrants from 40 countries created their Plan B to solve the problems of the urbanisation using wood (Kerto® LVL – laminated veneer lumber) as the main material. The task was to design a wooden extension to an existing urban building.

The competition was a great success both in number of entries and in the high quality of the designs. We received over 170 entries and all the designs are now presented on our website. The entries are categorized the in different themes. You can for example take a look at the overwhelmingly futuristic designs or see how entrants have turned urban roof tops into green cities. You can also filter the entries based on the country.
