Out Of The Woods
Wooden architecture and interiors
Inventive new ways to build using nature's oldest and most adaptable material.
Humans have been building houses out of wood for thousands of years and yet, in a contemporary world of options and innovation, the most primitive resource might actually be the most relevant.
From historic Japanese homes, to resort accommodation, to the modern trend of hygge, its tactility and warmth have influenced countless architectural design movements. Wood is quickly establishing itself as a viable material of choice, a safe, sturdy and durable alternative to concrete. Architects are rediscovering the universal appeal of wood, thanks to recent advances in technology.
This book explores the innovative and inspiring ways in which architects are using this universal building material. From grand alpine getaways to tropical getaways, plywood penthouses to hardwood skyscrapers, Out of the Woods documents their progressive and inspiring creations, from the foundations to the top.
