Riassunto: Wood presents a comprehensive survey of international wood architecture highlighting the incredible versatility of this building material and the environmentally friendly possibilities of using it in residential construction and design. Wood as a material evokes alternate images of warm comfort or sleek cool modern design, and its many special characteristics are explored through the selected projects, interiors, and furniture detailed in this book.Wood provides a unique opportunity to examine contemporary wooden architecture as a global phenomenon rich in cross-cultural influences and universality. It also illustrates the diversity in the use of this material in different climates, cultures, and countries.The book is divided into four main chapters: a short historical introduction; a compilation of different projects shown as a whole, and typologically catalogued according to the use of wood; a compilation of interior designs, arranged like the different spaces of a house and combined with wood furniture; and a catalogue of the most commonly used woods and their properties.
L'autore: Joaquim Ballarin is on the faculty at the BAU School of Design in Barcelona, Spain and is the founder of Nassar Associats Arquitects and his own practice, Estudi ARCA, both of which specialize in residential architecture featuring wood as primary building material. Mariona Villavieja is a journalist who covers architecture for leading publications in Spain.
