Toward a Culture of Wood Architecture.
Taggart, Jim.
Toward a Culture of Wood Architecture.
Canadians live on the edge of the largest forests on earth. A precious part of our natural and cultural heritage, these forests also represent one of the largest carbon sinks on the planet. Each tree is a beautiful part of the answer to climate change, and yet we are only beginning to ask of its potential. Each time we choose to build in wood we are part of a critically important chain of responsibility that will see the elegance of the living tree through to a new life in a building. This book provides a wonderful context within which to examine the future potential of wood as a building material. As the 21st Century unfolds, 'Toward a Culture of Wood Architecture' argues that by revitalizing our wood building tradition we can create new synergies between the natural and the built worlds, distribute both social and economic benefits, and contribute to the mitigation of climate change.
