The world needs a Plan B. Wood is a carbon-storing, renewable and strong construction material, yet it accounts only for a very small fraction of global construction. The wood construction industry is fragmented and local, while the construction business is dominated by two less environmentally-friendly construction materials – steel and concrete. A successful future demands a fundamental reinvention and rethinking of how we build with wood – by developing prefabricated elements. We need to build faster, more affordably, more efficiently and more openly. That’s why we launched the Open Source Wood Initiative.
