  • Kierre was built by the students of the 2014 Wood Program for the Technology Academy Finland. The wooden structure was an entryway and landmark for the Millennium Prize Pavilion in Central Helsinki. Using CNC cut laminated elements, the project creates a dynamic twist (Kierre in Finnish) emphasizing the lightness and flexibility of the wooden structure and the formal possibilities of plywood construction.
