Aims and Scope
Wonder Wood presents this timeless material as it is being used today and how it can be used in the future. It also documents a selection of current international projects and processes, making-ofs, and experiments by 120 internationally renowned designers, architects, and artists, whose creative and innovative approach to the material makes their work compelling. For selected projects, interviews with the designers provide an in-depth look at the creative process and its results. A second section, dedicated to materials and technologies examines innovative developments as well as wood, wood-based materials, finishing technologies, and wooden structure principles. With biographies of the designers represented in the book, an alphabetical index, a bibliography and sources, Wonder Wood will serve the reader as a classic book of reference.
