Considered one of the noblest building materials - and also a favorite of many global architects - wood delivers aesthetic, structural, and practical value in the most versatile of ways. Accompanied by different techniques - crafted or prefabricated - wooden construction has remained relevant in the history and forefront of architecture and design, thanks to new technologies that have expanded its possibilities.
From temporary pavilions to single-family homes and vertical, large-scale institutions, wood has maintained its value at the same level as many other structural materials such as steel, brick, or even concrete. This is especially prominent in the United States where renowned architects are using new techniques to advance this material which has also been posible thanks to the new regulations that allow further exploring and diversity.
