"This book explores the varied ways in which wood is used in contemporary architecture, showcasing a wide selection of architectural achievements from across North and South America, Europe and Asia. These buildings serve a wide range of purposes, from housing to schools, museums and auditoriums, to sports complexes or cultural centres. This is proof, if any were needed, of just how important wood is in architecture today, as either a structural building material or a form of cladding, opening up new horizons for clients and architects alike. The introduction takes a detailed analytical look at the different functions played by wood in modern-day architectural design, and this in a world where solutions to climate-related challenges are a longawaited necessity. The ensuing chapters zoom in on a generous selection of buildings, along with sketches, layouts, cross-sections and detailed execution plans, illustrating the importance of wood in building the architecture of the future through the myriad possibilities it offers not only to architects and their clients, but also to architecture critics and historians."

Timber is having a renaissance as an architectural material, as more architects come to understand its properties, and enjoy adding it to their repertoire of materials. With a growing crop of good new timber buildings, architects are coming to realise that this is no longer the sole preserve of the traditionalist, but a material that has an important role to play in the contemporary world. The book's introduction examines the ways in which a raw material of diminishing quality (but abundant quantity) can be 'stretched' to perform as it has never done before using new technology and careful detailing. The 40 case studies are devoted to some of the most interesting new wood projects from around the world. The projects are grouped in seven themed chapters. Featured architects from around the world include Steven Holl, Foster and Partners, Rural Studio, Renzo Piano and Shigeru Ban.

In our expectations, concrete is always rough and grey. Therefore, how to increase its public acceptance is architects' great consideration. Many architects have tried actively; some mix concrete and other materials in a proper proportion clean concrete surface combined with carefully manufactured wood or metal makes it easier to be acceptable. The perfection and abstraction of concrete are also more influential to those who are familiar to contemporary art trend."

Timber: the old raw material and building material returns.There are many reasons today for building with wood and there are great advantages over conventional designs. Wood is not only a renewable building material that helps reduce the levels of CO2 and is hence good for climate change, but, due to modern computing and manufacturing processes, it can also be used for a variety of construction tasks. Wood possesses excellent qualities for both construction and indoor climate control, and can easily be combined with other common building materials. Based on 24 international projects, the book provides an overview of the range of possibilities in wood construction today. Texts, images, and plans document the architectural and constructive qualities of contemporary timber structures from the conceptual design to the structure in detail. The various uses are based on current research in modern timber engineering but also on timber construction expertise that has been developing over many centuries. This special discipline has evolved significantly in recent decades, particularly in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, and is a world leader today.

Construction industry is the largest consumer of material resources, of both the natural ones (like stone, sand, clay, lime) and the processed and synthetic ones. Each material which is used in the construction, in one form or the other is known as construction material (engineering material). No material, existing in the universe is useless; every material has its own field of application. Stone, bricks, timber, steel, lime, cement, metals etc. are some commonly used materials by civil engineers. Selection of building material, to be used in a particular construction, is done on the basis of strength, durability, appearance and permeability. The stone which is used in the construction works, in one form or another is always obtained from the rocks. The rocks may be classified in four ways; geological classification, physical classification, chemical classification and classification based on hardness of the stone. Various king of rocks come under these classification for example; igneous rocks, plutonic rocks, sedimentary rocks, silicious rocks, stratified rocks etc. brick is the most commonly used building material which is light, easily available, uniform in shape and size and relatively cheaper except in hilly areas. Bricks are easily moulded from plastic clays, also known as brick clays or brick earth. Bricks can be moulded by any of the three methods; soft mud process, stiff mud process and semi dry process. There are various kinds of bricks; specially shaped bricks, burnt clay bricks, heavy duty bricks, sand lime bricks, sewer bricks, refractory bricks, acid resistant bricks etc. lime is an important building material, it has been used since ancient times. Lime is used as a binding material in mortar and concretes, for plastering, for manufacturing glass, for preparing lime sand bricks, soil stabilization etc. Concrete is a construction material obtained by mixing a binder (such as cement, lime, mud etc.), aggregate (sand and gravel or shingle or crushed aggregate), and water in certain proportions. Based on the binding materials, the common concretes can be classified as; mud concrete, lime concrete, cement concrete and polymer concrete. World demand for cement and concrete additives is projected to increase 8.3 percent annually in next few years. This book basically deals with rock and stone, formation of rocks, classification of rocks, geological classification, metamorphism physical classification of rocks, chemical classification, classification based upon hardness of the stone composition of stone (rock forming minerals), igneous rock forming minerals, sedimentary rock forming minerals, texture of the rocks, types of fractures of rock, uses of stone, natural bed of stone, aluminium and magnesium alloys, mechanical properties of a partially cured resin, DMA characterization, chemical advancement of a partially cured resin, differential scanning calorimeter characterization, chemical mechanical relations, moisture content as a variable, wetability and water repellency of wood, fungal and termite resistance of wood etc. The book provide wide coverage of building materials such as stone, bricks, lime, mortars, concrete, asbestos, gray iron, cast iron, steel castings, aluminium, wood, architectural paints and so many others with their applications in building construction. The book is resourceful for all professionals related to construction field, technocrats, students and libraries.

The dichotomy between architectural conceptions and executions has been started since the architects were severed from the construction role since modern period. The architectural school education further emphasizes this deviation between conception and executions. This is due to the conventional over evaluating conception to executions and the lack of understanding the relationship between constructions and details. The insufficient understanding constructions and details led to the uncertainty of accomplishing design conception, the gap between the concept and the final executions generated control problems and deprived the power of architects. This impairing of control power of architects in projects further weakened the original design prediction and impeded the maturity of an architect. The modern techniques developed architecture to a more and more various discipline, made it impossible to be grasped all the design skills by one person, the collaboration of different divisions of architecture was inevitably became the way to handle the complexity of the architecture. However, the emphasis on efficiency and cooperation led the individual architects' lack of comprehensive view of architecture. In most cases architecture is no longer the artworks of architects but the products of architectural firms. Based on the problems that mentioned above, my essay tries to find a way to combine the conception and executions together to understand architecture in a holistic way. Specifically my essay focuses on details design. By summarizing the principle of essential details to solve the confusions. By gradually elaborate between conceptual and the realization of the architectural design, from structure type to details based on different materials, comparing how different materials meet and other alternative possibilities. Generally speaking, this essay is trying to find a method to design a building with enough details in an early design stage. The method with will approach with several steps. The first step is to category details based on different material structures. It will focus on discussing with wood structure, masonry and steel structure; it's the starting frame of a building. Then based on the frame system, the details well are further elaborated in different relationships: Materials and structures, materials and building code, materials and materials to generalize typical facade cladding and details. These details conclude processing will serve to the primary working flow and further understanding of the design process from details transcend tectonic methods. Based on the research topic to explore the structures and details, the thesis project will be a relatively small building which contains as much as materials and structure types it can. The project will be an elementary school information center. It will provide the building the characteristic of an institution by applying the materials and structures forms. This relatively small and straightforward building will provide mainly two structures, which are steel structure intertwined with wood structure. How the structures express themselves in different characters and how details related to the structure will help to explain the design idea and process. By using the methods that generalized above, it will show the process of integration of architecture details and performance. Should the materials have their expression characters or should the materials can be shaped into the buildings' expressions served as toolkit?
