The new form of timber construction is hybrid! Timber construction is booming, not only because it is environmentally friendly: building in timber is gaining increasing importance particularly in an urban and multistorey setting. Material-optimized hybrid construction makes it possible to leave stereotyped thinking behind, while opening up completely new opportunities for timber architecture.The completely revised and extended edition of this manual conveys essential knowledge about the system and methodology of timber construction - from design and prefabrication to assembly on site. It creates a mutual understanding of all parties involved in the project required for collaboration in the integral planning and building process. It furthermore provides the technical competence needed for a convincing representation of modern timber construction.
