Wood Architecture in the Black Forest

In the largest German central mountain range, the Black Forest, wood as a construction material has always played an important role. In the current discussion surrounding building biology, climate protection and added regional value, wood is experiencing a renaissance. Innovative wood architecture is supported with clear arguments: technical performance, unlimited design possibilities, energy efficiency and sustainability. In the Black Forest, architects and craftsmen are showing what is possible with modern technology like the plywood building technique (CLT) and contemporary design. From rotating solar houses for providing refuge to refugees, to the addition of historic building materials to the renovation of the Black Forest hotel, pre-fabricated company buildings and glassy four storey office buildings.

We organize an excursion to different impressive examples. Upon request, tourist highlights can be included.
