Modern building with wood

Reading Tip23.02.2016

The building material of wood is not only being rediscovered in the traditional wood country of Austria. Wood unites a number of economic and ecological benefits. But not only the sustainability speaks to this diversely usable natural material, which the objects presented in this richly illustrated double volume show: new production techniques and a combination with other building materials open up completely new possibilities for modern architecture. Whether based on centuries-old traditions that are being reinterpreted or surprising experiments, whether works of famous architectural masters such as Renzo Piano or Tadao Ando, or buildings of young, innovative architectural firms – in each case, the numerous images offer fascinating insights and entice designers or builders to take a closer look at this natural all-round material.
