Description

This new professional resource covers the design and engineering relevance of timber grade, form and detail through:

  • historical reference to forestry and building craftsmanship - the nature of wood and the heritage of timber construction
  • principles of architectural design and structural form using wood, timber and engineered timber products (plywood, glulam, OSB, LVL etc.)
  • engineering led architectural expression - roundwood structures, trussed roofs, framed houses and structures, laminated beams, and arches and shells
  • case studies drawn from across the world illustrating their engineering design and resulting construction detailing and geometry.

This new book on engineered timber for buildings helps redress the imbalance of available information on the principles of timber design as against that already existing for steel, concrete and glass. It is designed to support specialist study in the benefits of timber engineered architecture of the 21st Century.

Engineered timber architecture offers a revival in many permanent large scale constructions of efficiency and delight as well as meeting the challenge of sustainability. This book offers the reader, whether student, teacher or practitioner, practical advice in designing timber architecture.
