Wood

Wood is a new book by one of our favorite publishers - Phaidon. The beautifully illustrated book takes you on a visual tour of timber architecture, showcasing the world’s best wooden architecture. It features 170 inspiring and intriguing structures, including an onion-domed Russian church that sits next to a fortified Japanese castle, and a luxurious Canadian sauna. Even the work of Le Corbusier, an architect best known for his work in concrete, is shown. Each project is highlighted with outstanding photography and an extended caption for commentary about each structure.
