Wood Architecture Conference - what is it about?

For the tenth consecutive time wood architecture conference in Tallinn brings together top architects and engineers from around the world who have stood out with innovative use of wood in their works. Wood is sustainable, lightweight, strong and easiely manufacturable material, while being a very traditional construction material it can also be addressed as one of the most innovative construction materials given to us by the nature.

Using wood is a challenge to both, arhictects and engineers, the conference seeks answers to such important topics as acoustics and fire safety in timber buildings, use of long span wooden structures, CLT solutions, wooden facades, etc.

The Annual Wood Architecture Award ceremony takes place during the conference.

Estonian Association of Civil Engineers (EEL) issues credit points for engineers who participate in the event. For issuing the certificate please contact
