Product description

Review

"This remarkable book showcases what architects could create with wood today using the latest computational design and robotic fabrication technologies. It features innovative wood architecture designed – and made – by four leading research groups in Europe. Rethinking wood from a computational perspective, they point to a variety of new ways in which this humble yet incredible material could be used in contemporary architecture." - Branko Kolarevic, University of Calgary
