In this lively panel discussion designers and architects involved in 2017 Wood Awards will explore the role of timber in the UK design world. Topics covered will range from innovations such as cross-laminated timber and CNC cutting to traditional joinery techniques.

Since the competition began in 1971 it has had an impact on the architectural and design landscape, becoming a ‘mark of excellence’ in wood.
