With ARKNAT we want to combine architecture and nature and give our future architects and engineers practical working experience with wood 

Martin Björklund, head project leader Arknat


ARKNAT is a concept merging Architecture and Nature. Every year leading architect students from all over Scandinavia gathers to challenge the way we look at design and through seminars, workshops and construction they leave behind new hideouts and shelters for public use.

The architecture helps us get in touch with our surroundings and maybe even more important – with ourselves

It is amazing to see what can be accomplished by highly motivated students during such a short period of time.

In the year 2020 ARKNAT won the "Architecute of the Year" awards (Årets Arkitektur). The awards was handed out during the Swedish Design Awards by RUM i Stockholm.

We would like to thank everyone who has made ARKNAT possible.
