These works feature a wide range of different uses of wood in home construction. Each of the projects is clearly explained by the designers themselves. Within this worldwide selection, several of the projects are located in the USA. All of the examples selected share the highest degree of architectural quality due to innovative uses of wood as well as the architects’ outspoken bid for environmentally sustainable construction. Included in this volume are sophisticated residences, contemporary homes, and small but remarkable wood-cabins. Outstanding photographs accompany the working plans and a clear text, to achieve an optimal communication of these buildings’ main features, the materials used and their defining characteristics.
