The Wood That Makes Our Cities: An Investigative Book by Leclercq Associés
François Leclercq and Paul Laigle, from the architecture and urban planning practice Leclercq Associés, are publishing in collaboration with architecture editor Michèle Leloup and photographer Cyrille Weiner a documented survey on the state of French forests, the wood industry and forestry R&D. The book retraces the practice’s twenty years of experience with wood construction through five of its projects and features contributions by historians, researchers, manufacturers, timber producers and forestry specialists.
The Wood That Makes Our Cities explores the environmental, economic, industrial and technical challenges involved in the use of wood for large structures and urban architecture. The book also assesses the future of wood construction.
