About this item

"This book explores the varied ways in which wood is used in contemporary architecture, showcasing a wide selection of architectural achievements from across North and South America, Europe and Asia. These buildings serve a wide range of purposes, from housing to schools, museums and auditoriums, to sports complexes or cultural centres. This is proof, if any were needed, of just how important wood is in architecture today, as either a structural building material or a form of cladding, opening up new horizons for clients and architects alike. The introduction takes a detailed analytical look at the different functions played by wood in modern-day architectural design, and this in a world where solutions to climate-related challenges are a longawaited necessity. The ensuing chapters zoom in on a generous selection of buildings, along with sketches, layouts, cross-sections and detailed execution plans, illustrating the importance of wood in building the architecture of the future through the myriad possibilities it offers not only to architects and their clients, but also to architecture critics and historians."
