A Win for Wood: A Swedish School Teaches Us a Lesson in Design


Träpriset, the Swedish timber prize, celebrates notable architecture every four years for developments and innovations with wood. This year the award goes to Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter, who accepted the award last night at a ceremony in Stockholm for the Raa Day Care Center.

Inspired by the surrounding sand dunes, the building blends into the landscape and acts as a playground.
The school was selected by a jury out of 139 projects.
