Abstract

Le bois connut sa pleine expression dans la technique du colombage. Il a gard un rôle de premier plan dans les bâtiments maçonnés : charpentes de toitures, supports de planchers, cloisons, escaliers, lui ont donné la préférence pendant longtemps. Au nombre de ses usages traditionnels, s'ajoutent encore les encadrements et les châssis de baies, les menuiseries intérieures et les revêtements de sols. Matériaux de la modernité, le bois séduit maîtres d'oeuvre et autres passionés qui en expriment toutes les qualités. Les constructions en bois ne cessent de croître, heureusement dégagées des formes dont l'image du matériau a pâti. Elles témoignent d'une recherche soucieuse de marier caractère et intégration. Plus discrètes, les applications intérieures ne manuent pourtant pas d'audace.

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)
