Innovative Wood Design and Architecture free exhibit

A free exhibition featuring the thirty-two shortlisted projects for this year’s Wood Awards will be on display at the Building Centre in London, from 31 October – 10 December 2022.

Showcasing a stunning array of British architecture and design using wood, this special exhibit will feature building models from 14 of the shortlisted projects, allowing visitors to explore, in miniature, the evolution of intent that shaped the buildings.

The collection of models on display highlights the incredible depth of timber design talent in the UK, with the shortlisted buildings this year including stadiums, school halls, and private residences – which can be found from Devon up to Edinburgh.

Visitors to the exhibit will be able to get a sneak peek into the daring wood designs found in the likes of ABBA Arena, the Sport’s Pavilion, Master’s Field, Balliol College, Homerton College Dining Hall, The Chapel Roof, Radley College, The Water Tower, and many more.

Also on show will be information on all the furniture entries into the Wood Awards, which were front and centre during the Material Matters fair at London Design Festival.

As we count down to the announcement of this year’s Wood Awards Ceremony on 23 November at Carpenters Hall, excitement is quickly building amongst the industry. From more than 300 entries, it is now just a matter of weeks until a timber design will be crowned the 2022 winner.

About the event: 

The exhibition is free to visit at the Building Centre, 26 Store Street, London, WC1E 7BT from 31 October to 13 December (Monday – Friday). Feel free to come along and visit.
