Happy World Wood Day!
This event falls annually on the vernal equinox, to symbolize the start of spring. Its purpose is to raise awareness on the key role wood plays in a sustainable world through biodiversity and forest conservation.
We at Moriyama & Teshima Architects have a profound respect for wood as a precious natural resource, but also as a highly versatile, beautiful, and sustainable building material.
Timber construction, in both small- and large-scale contexts, can impact the way in which we experience architecture and building design. Not only does wood invoke a sense of wellness and nature, but it presents limitless innovative possibilities for the construction industry and a low-carbon future. Throughout our projects, we consistently strive to employ wood materials in meaningful and environmentally conscious ways.
Let today serve as a reminder of the importance and true value of wood and its responsible uses.
