Design and Architecture Norway invites NACC members to a presentation on the Innovative Use of Wood in the City at the Center for Architecture

Wood City – Innovative Use of Wood in the City

6th of October 6-8 PM
Center for Architecture
536 LaGuardia Pl, New York


To reach our sustainability goals we must rethink, experiment and innovate. How can architecture become more climate friendly, make cities for people and at the same time contribute financially? The use of wood in the city is now possible in a different way than before. We can build multistory buildings in wood, fire and acoustics are taken care of, the qualities of wood constructions open up for a wide range of new possibilities.
