This volume details the design and construction process behind the Murray Grove, an extraordinary nine-storey residential development in central London.
The tallest building of its kind to be made entirely of timber, the structure will have a profound effect on the way we build in the future. Constructed on time and under budget, the building has pushed forward the boundaries of wood use in contemporary construction.
The book shows how London-based architectural firm Waugh Thistleton worked closely with the engineer and manufacturers throughout the design and assembly to enhance the building's performance and make the structure possible.
Detailed technical information, diagrams and descriptions are included here, along with a full description of the process by Wallpaper magazine Design and Arts Editor Henrietta Thompson.
