‘Holz Bau’ is a study conducted by a small architectural office in Tokyo on German timber architecture. It began with a hunch, a feeling of disconnection between conventional timber construction and traditional methods when designing timber buildings in Japan.

The first part features a reissue of a pre-war architectural magazine that served as source material and inspiration to explore further. The second contains photographs of researched buildings, with plans and sections newly created for this book. Lastly, essays about the technical history and potential of timber engineering, plus conversations with architect Go Hasegawa and German architect Jan Theissen of AMUNT.

360 p, ills colour & bw, 18 x 30 cm, hb, Japanese/Englis
