Plan B: Hybrid City Competition
Open Source Wood calls for building engineers, construction companies and architects to join in the initiative in finding the world’s best solutions towards more efficient, sustainable, modular and industry compatible ways to build.
Design an element, module or concept.
Select an existing multi-story building made of non-wooden materials.
Choose an element used in the building and redesign it using Kerto LVL (laminated veneer lumber) as the main material.
Criteria:The design should be sustainable (uses Kerto LVL as main material), efficient (modular and fits the current way of building) and include adequate amount of information and design materials for actual construction projects.
