With a growing number of new timber buildings, architects are realising that wood is no longer the sole preserve of the traditionalist, but a material that has an important role to play in the contemporary world. The book's introduction examines the ways in which this raw material can be stretched to perform as it has never done before using new technology and careful detailing. The 40 case studies feature some of the most interesting new wood projects from around the world. Architects include Steven Holl, Foster and Partners, Rural Studio and Shigeru Ban.
