Summary

"Contemporary architects have long overlooked the great versatility of wood as a building material. Now, however, they have begun to adopt wood as the natural solution to a variety of design problems, and as a result, this environmentally sustainable material is becoming increasingly significant in today's domestic architecture. Wood Houses, by noted architecture journalist Ruth Slavid, displays the entire breadth of this important architectural movement by covering forty-six recently built homes. The featured houses range from Fernau and Hartman Architects' Mann Residence in Sonoma County, a timber-frame house with a strikingly decentralized plan, to 24H Architecture's Arjang House in Varmland, Sweden, a reindeer fur-lined, cedar-shingled lakeside retreat. Each house's profile is illustrated with not only the architect's own plans and elevations but also numerous full-color interior and exterior photographs - 175 in total - that highlight the intrinsic beauty of wood."--BOOK JACKET.
