Wood in Construction at Nordic-German Seminar in Berlin

The Nordic embassies in Berlin conducted a seminar September the 25th regarding wooden constructions. The seminar was a part of an exhibition called Nordic Urban Spaces which was opened in a communal building of the embassies this summer. Mads Wolff, the chairman of the advisory board was facilitating a debate on the role wood constructions planning processes, regulations, technical challenges, health, fire protection, costs, consumer issues, life cycle etc..

Government representatives, researchers and representatives of the industry as well as young architects and architect students from Germany and the Nordic countries, also discussed which role constructions made out of wood could have within the process of decreasing emissions and therefore promote the Paris agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals.
