Anssi Lassila has been invited to give a lecture at the CLT Forum Japan 2018 in Tokyo. The Forum is an annual event organized by the Japan CLT Association, JCLTA, and this year it will be held for the 6th time.  The goal of the Forum is to increase knowledge about the use of CLT in architecture and construction in Europe and in Japan amongst professionals in the fields of architecture, design, construction and research.

In his lecture titled “Better Life” Anssi Lassila will be sharing his experience in using wood in architecture with the goal of creating a framework for a good life. Anssi Lassila will present a range of works from buildings that make use of the traditional Nordic log structures built by handicraft skills to projects that develop new ways of making use of the potential of CLT in creating sustainable solutions for future living and urban life.
