Exhibition: Woodlife Sweden

Presented in the frame of Swedish Design Movement, a series of events dedicated to sustainable design, the exhibition Woodlife Sweden showcases over 40 architectural projects in which contemporary Swedish architects and designers have made extensive use of wood.

Wooden high-rise buildings have become reality. So have design projects working with a no-waste principle. Public organizations and even towns have taken on the challenge of sustainable development for all citizens by building not only wooden housing but also wooden train stations and cultural centers.

The projects presented in the Woodlife Sweden exhibition are all facing a looming paradigm shift in the construction industry. Wood finds its place in housing, commercial buildings and public spaces: a universally relevant material, it helps to develop a green circular economy.

The exhibition presents 40 projects, on various scales and from all over Sweden. They 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.

In partnership with Paris Design Week.
