The 12th European Congress of the Forum Holzbau took place in Cologne under the title « Efficient Building with Wood in Urban Space ». As in previous years, more than 30 lectures covered a wide range of topics during the 2-day congress.

The main topic of the congress, « urban timber construction », was intensively dealt in the context of various contributions on dismantlability, timber facades and building extensions as well as building law and building construction with timber. The participants thus gained insights into sustainable construction and living from different points of view, underlining the resource-saving aspect of building with wood.
