Creating in wood
There has been a major upsurge in wood design in Ireland in recent years. Architects, engineers, designers and other specifiers are now using wood in a wide range of applications. Third level colleges are also incorporating wood in course studies and students and graduates are acquiring a knowledge and understanding of the creative possibilities of wood. These are being encouraged by the Wood Marketing Federation who present annual national awards to architectural, engineering and design students for innovative projects in wood.
The following are a number of case studies that demonstrate excellence in wood design, creativity and usage in Ireland.
