Deep in the Swedish forest there is an equally exquisite art museum. Created from an abandoned furniture factory, the Virserum Art Museum connects seamlessly with the context and surrounding community, all with a rich tradition in wood.

While quite surprised to find such an interesting museum in the middle of the woods, I feel fortunate to see its current exhibit, "WOOD 2010 and The Architecture of Necessity," a showcase of beautiful wooden architecture.
