The project team conducted a feasibility study on the vertical and horizontal extension of existing urban buildings using timber, based on the example of an actual municipal building in Warsaw. The study was developed in close collaboration with the City of Warsaw as well as Polish engineers and architects, and presented to a selected audience (authorities, professionals, developers, investors, etc.) on 24 September 2015 in Warsaw.
