"Le bois est une ressource durable et renouvelable. Il est résistant et séduisant. Il peut être cintré et mis en forme pour s’adapter aux projets les plus actuels. En architecture contemporaine, c’est le matériau du moment et ce nouveau volume, Wood Architecture Now! offre au lecteur un aperçu sur les utilisations les plus dynamiques et les plus passionnantes du bois en architecture, et ce dans le monde entier. Comme la terre, le recours au bois est presque aussi ancien que l’art de construire. Les colonnes des anciens Grecs étaient des arbres stylisés. Les constructions actuelles en bois réservent toutes sortes de surprises et mieux encore, elles sont naturellement ‘vertes’."— Eco-maison-bois.fr, France
