Latin for ‘Forest of the Future’, Nemus Futurum is Metsä Group’s new visitor centre in Southern Finland. The three-hour guided tour through forests showcases sustainable Finnish forest management and visitors use tablets, GPS tracking and augmented reality for an experience of how different forestry activities affect the climate and forest biodiversity.
During the tour, visitors make an intermediate stop at Laavu, a shelter built from Metsä Wood’s products, mainly from Kerto® LVL (laminated veneer lumber). The shelter houses around 20 people at a time in a space of 17 square metres. A dry toilet named Huussi, also made of Kerto LVL and plywood, complements the rocky hilltop location. The use of Kerto LVL enables fast, light and green construction.
