Archi’bois 2021

The Archi'bois contest is the first wood architecture contest for architecture, engineering and landscape design students in France. Organised by the Archimbaud Fund for Man and the Forest in partnership with the École nationale supérieure d'architecture Paris-Val de Seine, it aims to raise students' awareness of the use of wood in contemporary construction and urban development.

As part of the third edition of the contest, the round table broadcast live on 9 February on the theme of "What kind of wood do I design with?" provided an opportunity to exchange points of view on the multiple challenges of wood resources in contemporary architecture.

The meeting, hosted by Stéphanie Obadia, brought together Marie Schweitzer, architect and carpenter, Christophe Aubertin, architect and founder of Studiolada, Jean-François Dhôte, research director at INRAE, Marie Jorio, consultant in urban planning and post-carbon construction, and Jérôme Martinez, head of Bois de France.
