In stock (50 items available)
Best of Detail: Wood brings together highlights from Detail magazine about wood as a material. Besides a theoretical basis, the publication also offers a comprehensive section on projects, ranging from experiments to elaborate details, which provides abundant inspiration and examples of successful architectural design using wood.With its positive qualities and wide range of applications, wood excels in several areas: It meets the holistic evaluation criteria of sustainable construction and is perfect for outdoor use in sophisticated designs and facades, as well as for use in interiors. It enables short construction times, is relatively inexpensive and both builders and architects alike appreciate its sensuous charm and familiarity. Even today's high standards for acoustic insulation and fire safety in multi-storey buildings can be met by wood. These outstanding qualities are increasingly turning this traditional construction material into one of the most sought-after materials for innovative projects of the future, while its structural design potential, combined with a "pure" solution, allows the building of mixed and composite structures.
