Build-in-Wood Community


View info

Mass timber has emerged as one of the most sustainable solutions for building structures. Realizing a 30 000 m2 complex building with mixed uses and a high-rise of 20 stories, Sara Cultural Centre broadens the application of full timber construction and proves that timber is a viable solution for virtually any building type.

In this Wood Academy Talk, Robert Schmitz, architect and partner at White Arkitekter (Sweden), shares insights from designing Sweden’s tallest plyscraper, and how this project has become a sustainable showcase, empowering the local community and guiding others in our collective transition toward carbon neutrality.
