Experiences from timber buildings from three Nordic countries

Working with high-rise timber buildings requires a different way of working and a new set of skills. Daniela and Kristina will discuss the impact on architects working processes through practical examples in Arkitema Architects recent projects. The focus will be on among others construction system selection, detailing, challenges and possibilities. In early 2018 Arkitema Architects founded a new cross-border competence network, Arkitema Timber, to enable a close knowledge exchange internally and externally.
