This book provides analysis of both the technical and the aesthetic importance of details in modern timber architecture. Featuring the work of renowned architects from around the world, the book features 50 of the most influential timber designs for both residential and commercial architecture. Each project is presented with colour photographs, site plans and sections and elevations, as well as numerous construction details. There is also descriptive text, detailed captions and in-depth information for each project, including the location, client, architectural project team, main consultants and contractors. A free CD-ROM contains all drawings in both EPS and DWG (generic CAD) formats. An index includes the contact details for each featured architect. This is an excellent reference work for practising architects as well as architecture and design students.
