Natural, renewable, recyclable and aesthetically pleasing - wood is the perfect building material. Building with wood shows examples of how wood is being used around the world to create new and innovative styles, thanks to major advances in both application and sustainability.
Building with wood features exquisite photos that capture a wide range of 21st century construction: residential, public, cultural, educational, commercial and entertainment-related spaces.
From the Mount Fuji World Heritage Center in Shizuoka, Japan and Eystur Town Hall in the Faroe Islands to the College of Forestry at Oregon State University, each building is presented in double-page spreads with color photographs that allow readers to appreciate the inherent qualities of wood in different contexts.
The book provides encouraging evidence that architects around the world are responding to a climate crisis in ways that will both conserve and also provide comfortable environments in which to live, work and play.
