Seminar : Wood in Architecture - 16th Feb 2009
« on: February 11, 2009, 10:19:18 AM »
Wood in Architecture

an educational seminar for architects
Hardwoods can be used for a wide range of applications and offer a huge diversity of colour and character. Wood is not a homogenous material, it comprises many different species, all with different characteristics and natural properties. It is this diversity that presents so much potential for prospective designers, but given such a wide range of species to choose from, means that specifying the right hardwood for the right application can be a complicated business. It is therefore essential to know your species and know their potential. This seminar is designed to inform architects of the characteristics and possible applications for one very important group of temperate species, American hardwoods.
