Product description

Review

"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 "As wood construction continues to reach new heights, Tall Wood Buildings presents a collection of concepts and projects that allow readers to advance their understanding of how new mass timber technologies will facilitate the future. Green and Taggart's publication is notable for its comprehensive introduction to this emerging tectonic strategy, featuring a carefully selected cross section of built examples from around the globe and many clearly presented technical details. Its contributions will help usher in a progressive new approach for constructing safe and environmentally sustainable tall buildings."Ulrich Dangel in: Technology. Architecture + Design 2/2 (2018), 254-256
