Recently, Korean media has been paying more and more attention to tall wood buildings and wood as a building material.

On October 18, SBS – one of South Korea’s three national television networks – aired a 50-minute documentary focusing on the benefits of wood use in a built environment, the environmental benefits of wood buildings, and especially on the restorative quality of exposed wood in.

 

Key messages of the documentary included:

  • If you cannot go “forest bathing” regularly, you can bring the forest into your space by building with exposed wood
  • The use of wood brings nature’s health benefits into the built environment
  • Engineered wood products and mass-timber construction allows for wooden buildings that are both tall and safe
  • Use of wood can help mitigate climate change
