detailed programme info herein cooperation with Holzbau Atlas Berlin-Brandenburg

In order to pursue the city of Berlin's goal of transforming Berlin into a climate-neutral city by 2050, the state of Berlin and private owners are investing in timber construction as a future building technique. Building with wood was traditionally used in many ways in the city in the 19th century, and today it qualifies as a local, renewable material in urban multi-storey construction that conserves resources and binds emissions. In cooperation with the Holzbauatlas Berlin Brandenburg, we will visit innovative examples of contemporary timber construction in Berlin.
