How is one of the world's most ancient building materials getting a high-tech makeover?
VBD found out with a visit the Architectural Centre Gallery in Vancouver and the exhibition, "Future Wood".
The exhibition features building designs and concepts that use wood with a high-tech treatment. Whether it involves laser cutting or computer-aided wood routing, the projects are intended to show off wood as a material of the 21st century.
Oliver Neumann curated the show. He's a professor of architecture at the University of British Columbia and practices architecture in Vancouver. And he gave VBD a tour.
