Bergen International Wood Festival 2014

We have had a few posts here on Bergen´s own "Woodstock" already, and now designers, architects, artists, craftsmen and students from all over the world have been building wood structures / sculptures again.

On the festival site we find: "Bergen International Wood Festival (BIWF) has its focus on the use of wood as material, and its constructive, structural and tactile qualities. As part of this, BIWF arranges a biannual competition in construction of experimental spatial structures in wood".

Since I only have got thumbs, I look upon people who can build like this, with great respect (and some envy!).

It´s nice to have the structures built in the city center, but unfortunately some people had been partying too hard this weekend (National Day 17th of May, and 200 years since our own constitution), unfortunately paying no respect to the results of hard work.
