A wooden Metsä pavilion for the 2021 Olympic Games were built in Tokyo Metsä Group and Business Finland joined forces in building a wooden Metsä pavilion were used Tokio during the Olympic games. The pavilion were built on the grounds of the Finnish Embassy in the center of Tokyo. It is reported by the press center of Metsä Group. The Metsä pavilion offered multifunctional facilities which lend themselves to many kinds of events: exhibitions, seminars, celebrations, and relaxation. It served as a meeting place for Finland’s Olympic team during the Summer Olympic Games and the Paralympic Games. The Metsä pavilion is an excellent example of the advantages offered by industrially manufactured wood elements. Building with Kerto® LVL elements is fast and the lightness of the material enables construction on top of existing buildings, as is the case in Tokyo. Similar elements can be used also in buildings on a larger scale. The pavilion takes advantage of high-quality wood products – which function as a long-term carbon stock – in a variety of ways. The pavilion can be transported to the site as ready elements, unloaded, moved again, and re-assembled. This is in line with Metsä Group’s goal to replace fossil-based products with renewable and recyclable materials. The Kerto LVL products to be used in the pavilion’s construction are ecologically sustainable and efficient in terms of their material. The production process of the materials and elements generates very little waste. The elements were pre-assembled at the plant of Metsä Wood’s partner company and, thanks to this, assembly on site will be rapid. The architectural design of the Metsä pavilion were carried out by Helin & Co Architects. The design is based on the Kerto® LVL-based elements published in Metsä Wood’s Open Source Wood service.
