This double-volume book travels the globe to investigate one of the greatest renaissances in architecture: wood. How has this ancient, elemental material come to steal the show at luxury hot spring structures and cutting-edge urban renewal schemes? With 100 projects from China, Chile, and everywhere in between, this international survey explores the technical, environmental, and sensory elements that have inspired both rising talents and established stars to turn to timber.
