Following up on the success of Concrete and Brick, William Hall is tackling another popular building material with Wood. Covering the last 1,000 years with 170 different structures, Wood features work from renowned architects ranging from Renzo Piano and Tadao Ando to Peter Zumthor and Le Corbusier in a deliberately arranged collection designed to promote comparison and discussion. You’ll take a global tour everywhere from Vietnam to Belgium and Italy to Canada through 200+ pages of visual exploration into one of our favorite building materials. In addition to gorgeous photography (this is a Phaidon book, after all) you get insightful commentary about each of the structures and an essay by Richard Mabey that explores the relationship between wood and architecture. The hardcover tome will be released March 20, 2017 and will make a great addition to your coffee table book collection.
