Swedish Wood Student Architect Award

Swedish Wood, a department within the Swedish Forest Federation, was pleased to be able to work with the University of Liverpool School of Architecture sponsoring a student design competition. Having received the shortlist of seven entries our team in Sweden and the UK, Bjorn Nordin, Director for Architecture and Design, Alexander Nyberg, in house Architect and Tony Traynor, UK Project manager found the standard so high it was difficult to choose an overall winner and we would like to congratulate all who took part in producing a series of elegant and sympathetic designs. The various ideas brought a modernistic approach to the buildings, combining refreshing  and liberating concepts into the project designs. Easy to understand plans showing how the excellent use of wood can create light and transparent buildings in sensitive environments.
