Timber Construction

The possibilities of wood – considerable to start with – continue to grow. At present it is getting a foothold in the city centre. The systematisation of the construction is also changing: hybrid and composite methods are gaining ground on those using wood only. Sometimes it is difficult to identify buildings constructed in wood. But the desire to use it also stems from its sensual qualities. This very materiality is a compelling foil to the rationality of the design at a sports hall in Sargans, Switzerland. Other projects demonstrate wood’s potential to master the challenges associated with maintaining quality of life in our towns and cities.
