The modular and movable pavilion is made out of CLT spatial elements and LVL roof beams stretching 24 meters. Building with massive wood is fast, nature-friendly and almost totally silent. And we can build in places out of reach for concrete. Massive wood weights 5 times less than concrete, which means light foundations or no foundations at all as in the case of the Stora Enso Pavilion. With wooden elements, one can construct almost anything from single-family houses to skyscrapers and wooden cities. New Wood architecture is based on the renewing life-providing force of ecologically sustainable forests.
