Description

An illustrated celebration of how wood is used in modern architecture as a thermal and acoustic insulator and to bring warmth and texture to buildings.

Wood is one of the very best materials for building construction because of its versatility, its capacity as a thermal and acoustic insulator, its warm appearance, pleasant texture and feel and its ecological character. Architects love to use this natural material for exterior design and decoration, aided by new ways of fixing and joining wood thanks to modern technology. Today's criteria for sustainable housing (living) and offices (working) also benefit greatly from the use of wood. The great variety of available wood and the fact that it is easy to recycle results in the construction of the masterful and varied designs shown in this book.
