Modern conceptions of wood architecture tend to avoid the rustic ? they lean in the opposite direction. An attention to and emphasis on lines often coincides with the building?s basic ascetic forms. And still, the reference of nature as our first dwelling, as the origin of all building and the source of creative materials that are both long-lasting and beautiful lives on every wood design. Materials enthrall us and appeal to the emotions; they surround us with every step we take; we possess and feel them. As with humans, here too visual perception makes a first formative impression. With their help, accents are set in architecture and interior rooms reach completion. The series Architecture Compact sets the focus on materials which, on the one hand, have their very own character due to their texture and, on the other hand, can lead to surprising results when processed and combined with each other or other materials. This book showcases the most beautiful and interesting instances of the use of wood in international architecture and interior design in the 21st century. The 40 projects presented in this volume exemplify the specific character of the material, constructions details, new technology as well as the diversity of the theme.
