Die Amsterdamer Architekturakademie stellt mit dem Symposium "Wood: Structure and Expression" die Frage, wie die Tradition uns dazu anregen kann, Holzkonstruktionen in der Architektur zu verwenden. Neben Diskussionsrunden zu den Studierendenprojekten finden Vorträge mit internationalen Referenten wie Klaus Zwerger, Mario Rinke, Annemariken Hilberink oder August Schmidt statt.
