With its 20 stories, Sara Cultural Centre is not only the city of Skellefteå’s new landmark – it is also one of the world’s tallest wooden buildings that has attracted a lot of attention around the world for its sustainable design.
The talk will be held at the Center for Architecture and focus on how mass timber has emerged as one of the most sustainable solutions for building structures. Research on engineered timber has unleashed a world of previously unimagined design possibilities. Sara Cultural Centre is a proof of how it is possible to broaden the application of full timber construction and proves that timber is a viable solution for virtually any building type.
The talk is hosted by The Swedish Institute, Consulate General of Sweden in New York and Swedish Wood.
