Since 2020, researchers from Canada, Finland and Denmark have visited each other to learn more about wooden architecture. It is part of the Arctic Wood Architecture Network, a research project supported by the Ministry of Higher Education and Science.
Aarhus School of Architecture participates in the network with Anders Kruse Aagaard, Niels Martin Larsen and Matthias Klith Hardarson, and researchers from Aalto University in Finland and McGill University in Canada. In addition, Toni Österlund from the design studio Geometria is also a member of the research network.
The network aims to investigate whether there is fertile ground for research collaboration between the organisations. Through visits to each other, the network members get opportunities to see which facilities are available and which projects are underway.
In connection with the seminars in the three countries, the researchers have gone on field trips to the local industry within wood and robotics.
