From William Hall, the author of Concrete and Brick, comes the aptly titled Wood, a look at the world's most celebrated timber architecture. Featuring 170 structures from the last 1,000 years, Wood is organized into themes like Texture, Light, and Juxtaposition. The latter of which is arranged to promote comparison and discussion, taking readers on a global tour of different projects — like an onion-domed Russian church that sits next to a fortified Japanese castle. Each project is highlighted with outstanding photography and an extended caption for commentary about each structure. Hall provides an original look at one of the most versatile and storied building materials on earth.
