Full Description

Born out of traditional, rustic constructions, wood has judiciously made the transition to being among the top in the list of high-tech building materials. Adding to wood’s well-known ecological and building biology aspects, innovative timber construction technology now extends a great deal of design freedom as well, being extremely precise. Wood’s ability to enrich even the most futuristic, contemporary architecture, to impart warmth and tasteful classicism is not unknown.
Using wood in combination with, or in contrast to, other materials such as metal, glass, bricks, or exposed concrete is fast becoming a design option that architects and designers are increasingly choosing for their designs. Their willingness to experiment and be bold with design is evident in the material selection, interior appointments, and aesthetic finishes of their architectural creations.

Wood in Contemporary Architecture offers a unique overview of wood as a construction material for residential buildings worldwide, and also introduces architects, interior designers, and builders to the diverse characteristics of contemporary timber architecture.
