In this Wood Prize we have been able to find that wood takes new ground. The era when wood was considered where the building materials of the cottages is clearly over. A large part of the nominated projects consists of facilities or public buildings. During our trips around Sweden this spring, we also found that regardless of the size of the building, good wood architecture performed with the right touch and understanding of the wood material conveys a sense of well-being and well-being. Moreover, when this human-friendly dimension goes hand in hand with small imprints on the climate, one can justifiably say that wood makes everyone a winner!
