From the publisher. May 2014 issue of a+u is focused on wooden architecture from around the world that creates new landscapes.
In addition to nine built works, the issue features two competitions foreseeing the timber-nization of cities and three essays. The essays discuss different aspects of wood technology: adaptive timber structure of ultra-light shell by University of Stuttgart, harmonizing the joints of prefabricated wooden elements by collaboration of Finland’s timber industry, university and government, and tall wood building technology in Canada and other countries. When these technologies become practical and realized as architecture, we will witness a completely new landscape.
