Stora Enso and museum to build Stockholm’s smartest wood building


In Sweden, with Stora Enso as the principal partner and donations of SEK 85 million, Tekniska Museet – Sweden’s National Museum of Science and Technology – is mustering forces to create a digital, interactive learning and test environment for scientific communication in an innovative, sustainable new wood building creating a super smart wood building: Wisdome.

Wisdome is expected to be finished in late 2021 or early 2022. To inspire innovation and promote a sustainable future, the entire construction will be made of massive wood. The Museum is collaborating with Stora Enso, who will contribute expertise and sustainable wood products.

“Wood is a building material that’s all about innovation and the future, but also one that tells the story of our past. We are delighted to be involved in the Museum of Science and Technology’s efforts to inspire children and young people, and to be providing the most sustainable building material around for a signature building in Stockholm. We aim to create a finished structure that pushes the boundaries and shows what can be achieved with the building material of the future. We want our wood products to be used sustainably, innovatively and cost effectively, so this will be the smartest building in Stockholm,” says Per Lyrvall, Country Manager Sweden at Stora Enso.

Using state-of-the-art Swedish visualisation technology found in only a few places worldwide, Wisdome will surround visitors with projections and take them on a journey farther away, closer in and deeper down than anyone has ever been before – experiences that will help the visitor to see and understand connections that are otherwise hard to perceive.
