As architects, we can help through the decisions we make about what materials to use,” says Gert Wingårdh, founder of Wingårdh Architects. ”There are very few construction tasks that cannot be solved using wood,” says the architect.

Imagine the impact in terms of saved resources during the transportation of the building to the site. ”
