Product description


"With technical efficiency and editorial quality, this book takes stock of the most ambitious step that wood architecture has made of in the last decade: that of building highrises."
ArquitecturaViva 199 (2017), 69

"The case studies are thoroughly presented in a way that will be useful to professionals, both with regards to their architectural and structural design. Tall Wood Buildings is a very important book for the future - not only of architecture and construction - but also in presenting a viable option of how we might build a sustainable future for our planet."
David Valldeby in: www.canadianarchitect.com, 07/2017
