Timber construction is booming, not only because it is environmentally friendly but has increasing importance, particularly in an urban and multi-storey setting. This revised and extended edition conveys essential knowledge about the methodology of timber construction – from design and prefabrication to assembly on site. It creates a mutual understanding of all parties involved and provides the technical competence needed for a convincing representation of modern timber construction.
Material-optimised hybrid construction makes it possible to leave stereotyped thinking behind, while opening up completely new opportunities for timber architecture.
