Welcome to Woodland Sweden in Tokyo, at ARCHI-DEPOT!
April 25 – May 7
Woodland Sweden is an exhibition produced by Architects Sweden for the Swedish Institute to present contemporary Swedish wood architecture through photos and a film. For the exhibition in Tokyo a range of models of the projects have been added.
Sweden is synonymous with timber and the little red wooden cottage is a part of our national heritage. Today, we’re scaling up: modern wooden architecture consists both of single family homes as well as large constructions. In the exhibition, the examples show Swedish excellence in wooden construction in a broad range: from the exotic wilderness of a ‘naturum’ (natural habitat information centre) in Lapland to the architecture of a daycare centre in a suburb of Stockholm.
A film, presenting ten projects lets the visitors meet the architects behind the projects and get an insight about details and craftsmanship. Researchers also share their recent innovation in wood and the fascinating development of advanced technology. Together their stories paint the landscape of new designs and of wooden architecture in Sweden today.
The event Woodland Sweden in Tokyo is hosted by Architects Sweden, with support from the Embassy of Sweden in Tokyo and the Japan Institute of Architects (JIA).
Woodland Sweden has been produced by Architects Sweden for the Swedish Institute. The exhibition and event in Tokyo are made possible through the kind support and cofunding from ARCHI-DEPOT Corporation and ARCHI-DEPOT Museum.
