The United Nations have proclaimed 2011 as the »International Year of Forests«. On this occasion the Architekturmuseum in cooperation with the Department for Timber Construction at the TU München is presenting in an extensive exhibition titled »Building with Timber – Paths into the Future« the technical, economic and structural possibilities of the material. As a renewable resource wood is an ›all-rounder‹ between nature and technique: It is materialized solar energy, carbon dioxide accumulator as well as a universal building and raw material. In the accompanying scholarly publication the ecological importance, the technological potential as well as the new aesthetics of the familiar material will be analysed by nine renowned experts. A selection of 50 international examples will demonstrate the new digital manufacturing methods and the architectural variety of modern timber constructions from low-energy houses and wide-span supporting structures to high-rise construction.
