Touch Wood by Dirk Meyhofer

Book Description

Timber as a traditional building material provides exciting possibilities in architectural design that have long been recognised and employed. Quite apart from the aesthetic value of the different kinds of wood, one of the most important advantages is its sustainability, which make it part of energy-efficient architecture. Wood-based architecture has become a worldwide trend as it is compatible with modern housing and simultaneously time respects the requirements for economic utilization of natural renewable sources. "To Touch Wood" presents 60 outstanding examples of the latest architectural designs from all over the world for which wood has been used extensively both for its functional capabilities as well as its aesthetic appeal. Richly illustrated this title shows the innovative ways timber is currently being handled and how its use has been expanded by new technologies and experiments with traditional building methods.
