The Swedish Experience in Sustainable Wooden Construction – Woodlife Sweden

The Swedish Brazilian Chamber of Commerce and the Swedish Embassy in Brazil have the pleasure to invite members and friends to the presentation:

The Swedish Experience in Sustainable Wooden Construction – Woodlife Sweden
by Robert Schmitz – White Arkitekter

Wooden high-rise buildings have become reality. So have design projects taking on a life-cycle perspective working with a no-waste principle, and public spaces or even towns that take on the challenges of sustainable development for all citizens.

Mr. Robert Schmitz will talk about projects presented in the Woodlife Sweden exhibition wich are all facing the looming paradigm shift in the construction industry, where wood as the only renewable building material plays a key role.

Forty projects in various scales and from all over Sweden, have been selected to visualise how architecture, design and urbanism can help reduce the climate impact of buildings and products, and impact future development in line with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The exhibition Woodlife Sweden was produced by the Swedish Institute and Architects Sweden in collaboration with Swedish Wood, the Swedish Wood Award and the Swedish Forest Industries Federation in 2020.
