Building in Wood: Construction and Details
Building with wood has enjoyed a remarkable revival in recent years. Technically ingenious and aesthetically demanding buildings by architects such as Thomas Herzog or Santiago Calatrava derive their special character from wood. Modern building techniques are enhancing the structural possiblities of this traditional material and in the context of current ecological debates, wood - the natural and renewable building material - is gaining even greater importance.
