The new Naturally Wood book celebrates the unique story of leading-edge wood architecture and design across British Columbia, including innovative buildings like the Audain Art Museum.
Naturally Wood celebrates the unique story of cutting-edge wood architecture and design from the province of British Columbia, Canada. Thanks to advancements in technology and mass-timber products, wood is being used throughout B.C. in new and sometimes unexpected ways to construct everything from tall timber towers and affordable housing to community and cultural facilities. Within these pages, you’ll find more than 65 unique wood projects throughout the province—each of them distinctive, and many groundbreaking. Discover B.C.’s innovators of wood construction and design—read their stories and explore the lesser-known secrets behind their challenges and successes. Organized by building type, including schools, multifamily, commercial, civic and more, you can learn about a wide range of successful projects and get inspired by what is possible with wood.
The Audain Art Museum’s 3-page feature beautifully highlights the building as an understated, yet expressive counterpoint to the more traditional alpine architecture that surrounds it.
