Upcoming: Rethinking Wood

Together with Dr. Markus Hudert from Aalto University in Helsinki, Sven Pfeiffer is currently working on the Publication “Rethinking Wood”, which will be published at Birkhäuser in the fall of 2018. Our book project is a compilation of contributions by various authors on innovative methods of using the building material wood in architecture.

From our introductory text “The newfound appreciation and potential of wood as a building material is reflected in a growing number of outstanding contemporary timber structures, many of which have been made possible by digital design tools in combination with numerically controlled manufacturing processes. An equally important contribution to this renaissance of wood architecture has been made by technological developments in wood-based materials”
