Anssi Lassila has extensive experience in working with wood in architecture. In his approach he emphasizes the potential embedded in exploring new methods and techniques as a means of developing new solutions in building. In his work he puts a particular emphasis on creating architecture in a human scale. The interaction between the building and its surrounding context is of special importance to him.
