In connection to the exhibition “Woodland Sweden”, the Museum of Estonian Architecture, Swedish Architects and the Embassy of Sweden in Tallin are organising a mini-seminar on contemporary wooden architecture.
- Monika Pitura (Wingårdhs). One of the most well-known Swedish architecture offices has been for years involved with building in wood and is represented in the exhibition with several projects, e.g. the Naturum Laponia visitor centre in Lapland and Aula Medica, lecture hall complex in the Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm.
- Oskar Norelius (White Arkitekter). The largest architecture office in Scandinavia has recently designed the biggest wooden building in Northern Europe – the Skellefteå Cultural Centre and 19-storey hotel complex which should be completed in 2021.
- Erik Persson (General Architecture). While this architecture office is represented in the exhibition with a small project, remodelling an old granary into a summerhouse in Arboga, currently the construction of Cederhusen project is starting – a large development of four wooden tower blocks with 234 apartments in Stockholm.
- Sten Ader (SKAD Arhitektid). Architect Sten Ader has won the “Wooden Building of the Year” award twice (2009, 2014) and has thoroughly explored the issue of using of cross-laminated (CLT) in architecture.
