Rainer Mahlamäki is a professor and partner at Lahdelma & Mahlamäki. In this video, he talks about the Finnish Nature Centre, Haltia as the first public building built with CLT (cross-laminated timber).
CLT makes it possible to build large and tall with wood because it has some of the same qualities as concrete.
