The Jaroslav Fragner Gallery hosted the exhibition White Arkitekter: A HEART OF WOOD until mid-March. It was the first exhibition of one of the most important Swedish architectural studios in the Czech Republic and featured the innovative use of CLT panels for high-rise buildings. The internationally active White Arkitekter office is dedicated to environmentally and socially sustainable architecture using wood as an important renewable material. In 2016, the studio designed a 20-storey building in Skellefteå, Sweden, which is one of the tallest wooden high-rise buildings in the world.
The accompanying programme included an expert debate on the possibilities, technologies and materials for multi-storey buildings in the country. One of the panelists was the director of the Timber Research Institute, Mrs. Jitka Beránková.
