Those of us who have expertise have a responsibility to share, and the fastest way is an open source approach promoting knowledge and innovation from all corners of the world. Open Source, No Response, Innovation, Knowledge, How To Plan, Wood, Art, Madeira, Art Background

Welcome

Those of us who have expertise have a responsibility to share, and the fastest way is an open source approach promoting knowledge and innovation from all corners of the world.

Today only a fraction of global urban construction is wood. Not enough knowledge about modular wood design and building is shared, so wood construction remains niche. We believe that with open collaboration the industry can achieve significant growth.

Welcome

Wood is a carbon-storing, renewable and strong construction material, yet it accounts only for a very small fraction of global construction. A successful future demands a fundamental reinvention and rethinking of how we build with wood - by developing prefabricated elements.

Metsä Wood is taking the first step by sharing its own intellectual property for modular Kerto® LVL wood elements, making them available freely for everyone.

Wood is an optimal material for urban construction as it enables faster building processes; its lightness leads to more affordable structures and it is the most environmentally friendly building material - battling climate change through carbon storage.
