Timber has had a renaissance as an architectural material, as more architects have come to understand its properties as a material that has an important role to play in the contemporary world. The book's introduction examines the ways in which timber - using new technology and careful detailing - can be 'stretched' to perform as it has never done before and then 40 case studies are devoted to some of the most interesting new wood projects from around the world.

The projects are grouped in seven themed chapters, illustrated with over 300 colour photographs. Featured architects from around the world include Steven Holl, Foster and Partners, Rural Studio, Renzo Piano and Shigeru Ban.
