Construction materials are of key importance, if we wish to limit global warming below 2 degrees Celsius. Today, a half of all raw materials are used for construction, and the amount is expected to rise as the global population grows. We need to build to more with less.

Production of cement, steel, aluminium, and plastics may account close to double the amount of allowable emissions by 2050. In addition to climate harms, extraction of raw materials is a serious threat to biodiversity. Around 90% of global biodiversity loss is connected to extraction of raw materials.

In this exhibition, you can see scale models of different types of wooden buildings and material samples of bio-based and circular materials.
