Raising awareness to the possibilities and perks of building in wood is the main focus of this installation in the very centre of the touristic old town of Innsbruck.

The "wood passage", commissioned by the wood associations proHolz Austria (Association of the Austrian Wood Industry), proHolz Bayern (Bavarian Association of Carpentry and Woodworking Industries) and Lignum Schweiz (Association of the Swiss Wood Industry), lasted from the 14.10.19 until the 28.10.19 and attracted plenty of both local and tourist attention.

Roll-ups and communication material informed the visitors of the benefits of timber construction: Not only is building in wood environmentally friendly, it is also ideal for the heightening of existing residential buildings due to its low weight and high static load capacity. The increased amount of wood used in the construction sector reduces the demand for energy-intensive building materials and fosters the achieving of climate goals.

This project has received funding from
the European Union's Horizon 2020
research and innovation programme
under grant agreement No 862820.
