Wood holds a unique and timely lessons for urbanization, yet it remains inadequately characterized in architecture, landscape architecture, and urbanism.

From under-considered thermal properties to emerging manufacturing possibilities, from changing forestry regimes to larger carbon cycle dynamics, Wood Urbanism explores the unique material and scalar properties of wood, presenting it as a critical material for design today. It brings into conversation scholars and practitioners who focus on wood from a range of perspectives--from the working forest to the mid-rise building to the basic cell.

Drawing from the inherent intelligence and depth of multiple disciplines, this book offers a transcalar perspective on the role of wood in contemporary urbanization--from the imperceptibly small to the confoundingly large.
