Metsä Wood has been focusing on a significant challenge facing humanity, which is the world’s growing urban population. Through a competition called the ‘City above the City’, Metsä Wood asked architects all over the world to propose solutions using Kerto® LVL, to build upon existing frameworks in cities and to knit together the old and new to meet this challenge. Entries came in from 69 cities worldwide including London, Sydney, Shanghai, New York, Berlin, Paris and London. For more information about Kerto® LVL and to see the winners, visit our website
