Timber Construction

Timber Construction

As the demands placed on environmentally sound construction increase, wood – a renwable resource – is undoubtedly gaining significance. New areas of application have emerged, and the material is being employed with increasing frequency in urban settings. In this issue we present an urban residence in Amsterdam by meesvisser.

The pre-school in Lugano by Bruno Fioretti Marquez Architekten exemplifies modular building with a high degree of prefabrication. New jointing techniques and materials, in combination with other materials, open up new possibilities both with regard to load-bearing structure and design. Moreover, as demonstrated by a boathouse in Chile and the European School in Frankfurt, mixing different types of wood is no longer taboo.
