I have decided ti use wood as the primary structure for the building I am designing at Uni, with a lot of timber cladding to reflect the context. I have just come across a couple of really interesting websites on the benefits of using sustainably sourced wood in construction:
This website has a number of precedent case studies, one of which is a Visitor Centre by Adam Khan Architects which I love!
But the main focus of the website is to describe how increasing the use of wood will benefit the environment, the economy and the community.
This website is full of inspirational buildings, I am currently looking through them now!!
Anyway, back to making decisions about my building….
