100 Contemporary Wood Buildings



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 Bibliotheca Universalis edition 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 by architects around the world. 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, such as at the Termas Geométricas Hot Springs Complex in Pucón, Chile, by Germán del Sol.

True to all TASCHEN architecture titles, the book pays tribute to many emerging international talents as well as to such renowned figures as Tadao Ando and Renzo Piano. It celebrates each 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 psyche, comforting hectic modern lives with a sense of Arcadian simplicity.

Philip Jodidio ha studiato Storia dell’arte ed Economia ad Harvard e per più di vent’anni è stato curatore della rivista d’arte francese Connaissance des Arts. Tra i suoi libri si annoverano la serie Homes for Our Time di TASCHEN e monografie su vari architetti di spicco tra cui Norman Foster, Tadao Ando, Renzo Piano, Jean Nouvel e Zaha Hadid.

Till,3 novembre 2021
Durch den ausgeprägten nachhaltigen Zeitgeist wird es auch in der Welt der Häuser unabdingbar, auf unsere Erde zu achten. In diesem Bildband sind viele sehr schöne Beispiele, wie wir als Menschen mit unserem Lebensraum zusammen funktionieren können, ohne diesen zu zerstören.

Beautiful cover

Alejandra,29 ottobre 2021
Everything inside the book is amazing and beautiful, every photo and everything that is written inside. If you are into arquitecture, I strongly recommend you to buy it. Plus, it looks beautiful as decoration, the cover looks as if it was actually made out of wood.
