Between March 15th and March 27th 2013 the Central House of Architects will host the Nordic Wood festival of wooden architecture in where the most interesting examples of wooden architecture in Scandinavia, the Baltic states and will be on display. The festival is being produced by the nationwide ARCHIWOOD project. The main event of the festival is the photographic exhibition. Works by recent winners and runners-up of prizes for wooden architecture from Norway, Finland, Denmark, Estonia, Latvia and Russia will be on show, along with other works by architects building in wood from these countries. More images and information on the event after the break.

The program of the event is aimed not just at professionals but also at interested amateurs with a passion for architecture, design and photography. The events space at the Central House of Architects – an exhibition hall which for many years was closed to the public – will be brought back into use for Nordic Wood. The exhibition was designed by architects Nikita Asadov and Yelizaveta Fonskaya (made together). The curators are Vladimir Frolov, Maria Fadeyeva, Yulia Zinkevich and Nikolai Malinin.
