Abstract

Hilde de Haan Wood Works Onix Architecture in wood Design: Peter de Kan, Illustrated (colour), Hardback, 324 pages, Size: 17 x 24 cm English/Dutch edition, ISBN 978-90-5662-679-2, € 47.00 November 2009 Concept and compilation: Haiko Meijer together with Hilde de Haan, Peter de Kan and Alex van de Beld Partially made possible through the support of Timber Information Centre, Almere Wood Works Onix is an adventurous exploration of wood architecture by Onix, the Dutch architectural firm famed for their innovative use of wood. Their preference for this material has a lot to do with its special qualities: it is flexible, warm, natural and environment-friendly. What makes Onix's work especially fascinating, is how they make full use of the opportunities this particular material offers for experimentation and how they push that to its limits. Always playing with both traditional craftsmanship and the latest techniques in construction, Onix designs a world that is just a little bit more exciting than usual, a world where the inhabitants and users of an environment become just a little bit more involved with that environment and with each other. Wood Works Onix offers the expertise and experience of studying, developing and realizing timber structures over a period of some 15 years in what the bureau terms 'thoughtful' architecture. Detailed drawings, sketches and photographs of the construction process for more than 20 architectural structures showcase the bureau's never-ending quest for novel applications for wood. The book also illustrates how the Onix architects assay their ideas in experimental installations, for which huts, nests, branches, tree trunks, pallets and crates are the source of inspiration. The Onix architects reveal their love for wood as a material, spanning from their childhood memories of forests to the pleasure they derive from using timber for their buildings toda http://www.naipublishers.nl/architecture/woodworks_onix_e.html (9/11/10)

Abstract

In light of environmental challenges architecture is facing, wood is no longer regarded as outmoded, nostalgic, and rooted in the past, but increasingly recognised as one of the most promising building materials for the future. Recent years have seen unprecedented innovation of new technologies for advancing wood architecture. This volume gives a comprehensive overview of the new architectural possibilities that are enabled by cutting-edge computational technologies in wood construction.

Abstract

The chapters cover the basic principles of working with timber and provide detailed information on subjects such as thermal performance, sound insulation and fire protection. There is also a chapter devoted to the ecological significance of wood. Timber as a loadbearing material is considered and topics such as new methods of jointing, transport and erection are documented. The second part of the book presents a large number of built examples, which feature some classic structures but focus chiefly on more recent buildings. These are presented with full illustrations, details and plans which depict solutions as built for various loadbearing systems. The spectrum of timber structures presented ranges from heavy-duty bridges to multi-storey residential buildings and the magnificent Expo roof. The second chapter of examples deals specifically with topics such as facades, building envelope etc. All drawings and illustrations have been carefully produced to ensure that the details and methods of construction documented are clear and comprehensible.
