Timber: AGAINST THE GRAIN
Disciplines: Print, Typography
As part of our series that explores the various materials used in building design and construction, this brochure focuses on timber. Living in an age of environmental awareness, the use of timber in construction has been growing considerably, and developments in technology, research and innovation is leading to new uses for the material.
The publication explores the use of timber in the past, using AKT II’s project portfolio as prime examples, whilst also detailing where timber’s unique properties fit into the modern building industry.
