Synopsis: Timberland: The wooden structures of the 21st century   Not so very long ago, some might have considered wood a material of the past, long since replaced by more modern components such as concrete and steel. The truth is radically different. Bolstered by new manufacturing techniques and ecological benefits, wood has seen a fabulous resurgence in contemporary construction.

This double-volume survey explores how architects around the world have created and invented with this elementary material. Featuring follies, very large buildings, and ambitious urban renewal schemes, it celebrates the diverse deployment of wood from architects in China, Chile, and everywhere in between. We see how wood can at once transform urban spaces, as in the Metropol Parasol in Seville by Jürgen Mayer H, and allow for sensitive interventions in natural environments, as at the Finnish Forest Research Institute by SARC Architects, or the Termas Geométricas Hot Springs Complex by Germán del Sol.

True to all TASCHEN architecture tomes, the book pays tribute to many emerging international talents, as well as to such renowned figures as Tadao Ando to Renzo Piano. It celebrates each of these architect’s vision and innovation, as well as investigating the techniques, trends, and principles that have informed their work with wood. It examines the computer guided milling that has allowed for novel new forms, the responsible harvesting that allows wood to align with our environmental concerns, and, above all, wood’s enduring appeal to our senses and our psyche, comforting hectic modern lives with a sense of Arcadian beauty and simplicity.   Text in English, French, and German

Book Description Taschen Deutschland Gmbh+ Dez 2015, 2015. Buch. Book Condition: Neu. Neuware - Dieser Doppelband erkundet, wie Architekten überall auf der Welt mit diesem elementaren Material arbeiten. Er stellt Zierbauten, sehr große Gebäude und ehrgeizige Stadtumbauprojekte vor und zeigt, wie zum Beispiel Jürgen Mayer H. mit seinem Metropol Parasol in Sevilla ganze Stadtteile verändert hat und wie die finnische Forstliche Versuchsanstalt von SARC Architects sowie die Termas Geométricas von Germán del Sol sensible Eingriffe in die Natur vornehmen. Ganz in der Tradition der TASCHEN Architekturreihe präsentiert dieses Buch junge internationale Talente neben Altmeistern von Tadao Ando bis Renzo Piano. Es feiert die Visionen jedes dieser Architekten und gewährt einen Einblick in die Techniken, Trends und Prinzipien, die ihre Arbeit mit Holz prägen. Dabei geht es ebenso um den computergestützten Holzzuschnitt, der vollkommen neue Formen ermöglicht, wie um verantwortungsvolle, umweltgerechte Forstwirtschaft, vor allem aber um den anhaltenden Charme von Holz, der unsere Sinne und unseren Geist anspricht und uns in der Hektik des modernen Lebens mit idyllischer Schönheit und Einfachheit Ruhe schenkt. 656 pp. Deutsch.
