It is organised by the Wood in Culture Association, sponsor of the Spirit of Nature Wood Architecture Award, which recognises the achievements of the best architects working in timber. This award was presented to Japanese architect Kengo Kuma at a ceremony at the Sibelius Hall in Lahti on Saturday. Visit www. spiritofnature. net for details.
