Wood is without a doubt en-vogue with its impressive natural qualities. The residences presented in this volume are vivid manifestations of Frank Lloyd Wright’s statements that wood is "universally beautiful to man" and "the most humanly intimate of all materials.” The selected contemporary projects from around the world demonstrate the sheer endless possibilities for the use of timber in architecture and interior design.

The shown architectural solutions emphasize the unparalleled advantages of this renewable building material, both in terms of design and function. Furthermore, they highlight the amazing versatility of wood, with a special focus on a large number of recently developed new techniques, processing options, and innovations. Above all, wooden architecture is a promising opportunity for architects to work towards a more CO2-neutral future.
