Humans have been building their homes out of wood for thousands of years. Its tactility and warmth has influenced countless architectural movements, dating back to historic Japanese houses all the way up to the recent craze for cozy Scandinavian interiors. It's one of the world's oldest architectural materials and it just might be the future of how we build. Timber is fast emerging as a sustainable material of choice, and thanks to recent technological advances, it's a safe and sturdy alternative to concrete. This book explores the innovative and inspiring ways architects are using this universal building material. Spanning grand Alpine escapes to tropical getaways, plywood penthouses to mass timber high-rises, Out of the Woods celebrates a material that is both ancient and extremely versatile - and more topical than ever.
