On the 25th of April, the grand opening of the exhibition Woodland Sweden in Japan took place at Archi-Depot in Tokyo. And right here on arkitekt.se we have the pleasure of showing you a film (length: about 2 hours) from the event – almost as good as being on site! Sit back and enjoy the inauguration – from the opening by Swedish minister of Housing and Digital development Peter Eriksson to a series of short lectures on the theme of wood-building today. The exhibition at Archi-Depot, was shown until the 7th of May, 2017.
