Description

Published by Gestalten, Out of the Woods: Architecture and Interiors Built from Wood explores new, innovative ways of using wood as a building material in various types of sites around the world. The captivating photos and informative stories take you on a journey from Alpine escapes to tropical getaways and from plywood penthouses to mass timber high-rises.

Humans have been building homes from wood for thousands of years, and yet, in a contemporary world of option and innovation, the most primitive resource could in fact be the most pertinent. Stretching back to historic Japanese houses, becoming synonymous with resort accommodation, and intertwining itself in the modern trend of hygge, its tactility and warmth have influenced countless architectural design movements. Timber is fast emerging as a viable material of choice, a safe, sturdy, and sustainable alternative to concrete. Architects are rediscovering wood’s universal appeal, thanks to recent technological advances.
