Construction facing the imperative of carbon neutrality
Wood is for now
For its 10th edition, amid this crucial year 2020, the International Wood Construction Forum will be held at the Grand Palais to carry the message of bio-based architecture in the heart of the metropole area in the heart of the French capital. The colossal development of the bio-based construction is essential to achieve the set European goal of carbon neutrality and as the best solution to adapt the built and the city to the consequences of the climate shock. Finally, bio-based construction and neutrality in carbon constitutes a source of creativity and local activity.
This revolution in constructing won’t be in opposition with the tissue and building practices, but more in reinforcing synergies.
Under the huge nave in metal and glass of a mineral Grand Palais, supported by an oak forest, the Forum put its tenth edition under the sign of constructive fraternity.
Let us work together towards an ecological and united transition with wood!
See you at the Grand Palais in Paris on July 15th, 16th and 17th, 2020!
