Use of Sustainable Wood Building Materials
Three forest countries, but also three different cultures, identities, mentalities, languages, religions, people, and collaboration between architecture, engineering and timber craftsmanship.
Bosnia and Herzegovina is the most forested country in the Balkan area, and Sweden and Slovenia are two of the most densely forested countries in the European Union. Living habits differ considerably between these three countries, but the use of wood is very similar.
This book grew out of the collaboration of three wood scientists with totally different backgrounds who met and discussed their common interest - wood. Based on the different experiences in each country, the idea was to try to find ways to increase the common knowledge base for the use of wood, achieving excellence in timber design research and education; the architect with a deep knowledge of culture based needs, the engineer with experience and knowledge of technological needs, and the practitioner who always has to find the final solution.
