Synopses & Reviews
In the footsteps of the acclaimed Concrete and Brick, a fresh look at one of the world’s most versatile building materials
A fascinating, visually rich collection, Wood explores the beauty of this versatile material through 170 structures from the last 1,000 years. Organized into themes such as Texture, Juxtaposition, and Light, this inspiring and informative resource highlights the material’s range and unique qualities, pairing engaging text with stunning photographs of cabins, churches, monuments, cultural spaces, and other projects from some of the world’s leading architects, including Le Corbusier, Renzo Piano, and Greene & Greene. Also included are equally striking and memorable projects by such contemporary architects as Peter Zumthor, Sou Fujimoto and Snohetta.
Wood is a fresh, insightful and surprising look at the world’s best timber architecture.
With 170 structures from the last 1,000 years, Wood features projects from some of the world’s most celebrated architects. Renzo Piano’s otherworldly New Caledonian Cultural Centre is found alongside projects from Tadao Ando and Peter Zumthor. Even the work of Le Corbusier, an architect best known for his work in concrete, is shown – his humble Mediterranean log cabin, Le Cabanon, was his last home.
Arranged to promote comparison and discussion, the selected projects take the reader on a global tour of inspiring and intriguing structures: a Vietnamese village hall sits beside a state-of-the-art Belgian laboratory, an Italian anatomical theatre alongside a luxurious Canadian sauna and an onion-domed Russian church next to a fortified Japanese castle.
Illustrated with extraordinary photographs, each project includes an extended caption providing an insightful commentary on the building.
An essay by the bestselling author and naturalist Richard Mabey explores the close relationship between trees and architecture.
Following the popularity of Concrete and Brick, Wood is a beautiful and informative visual exploration of a natural material that harbours an extraordinary range of expression and potential and has inspired architects for generations.
