Wood Wonders presents building concepts and wood structures that are carbon-neutral, recyclable and versatile. The exhibition also introduces research projects that in recent years have engineered the chemical properties of wood.

Wood Wonders was designed by a multidisciplinary team with members from three of Aalto's Schools, and it opened in entrance hall 2B at Helsinki-Vantaa Airport on 5 February 2020. The exhibition is part of a long-term passenger experience collaboration with Finavia.

The Finnish Ministry of the Environment has supported the exhibition.

The exhibition includes a multi-channel sound installation composed using various original recordings of wood and wooden objects. The sound installation is composed, recorded and post-produced by Antti Ikonen.
