"Whether creating designer elements for defining high-quality architecture such as the Warner Stand at Lords Cricket Ground or focusing on the realisation of contemporary and sustainable buildings – wood as a natural raw material has established its position and is currently undergoing a revival quite unlike any other," say the organisers.

"Continuous technical developments and the need for sustainable management of our resources are further reasons why solid wood solutions such as cross laminated timber, laminated veneer lumber and glue laminated timber – are proving to be the material of choice for the 21st century."
