Finnish engineered timber company MetsäWood recently announced the winners of its ‘City above the City’ competition, using laminated veneer lumber, which attracted proposals from architects from 40 countries hoping for a share of the €35,000 prize money. While the winner was a German/Korean duo in Finland, we most enjoyed the audacity of Giuseppe De Marinis Gallo and Gianluca Gnisci’s ‘Abovealla’ proposal for a hat on the iconic Flatiron Building in New York with typical Italian braggadocio.
