These works feature a wide range of different uses of wood in home construction. Each of the projects is clearly explained by the designers themselves. This international selection features several projects that are located in the USA. All of the examples selected share the highest degree of architectural quality due to innovative uses of wood as well as the architect's outspoken bid for environmentally sustainable construction. Included in this volume are sophisticated residences, contemporary homes, and small but remarkable wood-cabins. Outstanding photographs accompany the working plans and a clear text, to achieve an optimal communication of these building's main features, the materials used and their defining characteristics.
