C3 383| Wood Poetic And Practical Possibilities

As a construction material, wood is currently undergoing a global revival, taking centre stage in this instalment, which presents recent works displaying contemporary and innovative applications of this timeless and environmentally conscious medium. These ten civic and community-focused buildings all use regional, native timbers as their signature material, displaying refinements in engineered timber, such as glulam (CLT), as well as integration with the surrounding landscape. Projects include the New Maggie’s Cancer Centre in Manchester by Foster + Partners, Knarvik Community Church by Reiulf Ramstad Arkiteker, and Markus Schietsch’s Elephant House at Zoo Zürich.
