What is the exhibition about?

Wood is a carbon sink – a material for building sustainable societies. Wild Wild Wood demonstrates the versatility of wood as a material. In addition to traditional sawing, wood is now worked with computers and automation. Architects can even use it to create skyscrapers. The exhibition also illustrates the importance of forests and durable wooden products in mitigating climate change.

The exhibition is a multisensory, personal and powerful experience of the wonders of wood, with many fun shared activities!
