building the future
January 9, 2017
Still some days to experience a wonderful exhibition at Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin “Bauen mit Holz“! In english: “Building with Timber – Paths into the Future“.
It is a very inspiring and fascinating exhibition about the current state of building culture with focus on timber. “Bauen mit Holz“ runs until January 15th – better hurry up, if you want to join a very inspiring tour de force into creating dream places, building viable and beautiful houses, establishing environments where life can unfold in better and more harmonic ways, thinking big and a lot more.
From the museums website: “The narrative of the exhibition begins in the woods. Its importance for our environment and society will be explained and the reasons as to why it is sensible to use this fascinating material will be explored. The circle is completed by the portrayal of the increasing significance of alternative varieties of wood, such as hardwoods which will become more relevant in the industry’s future.
The fascination for a material which grows – so to speak – next door and which is uniquely useful in so many ways will be shown in the exhibition. A material which has demonstrated for centuries its suitability for use in huge structures as well as for furniture and which is still associated with feelings of comfort by many people.“
