Reusable and adaptable wood structures
Developed by TRADA, in partnership with wood for good, this publication shows how a wide range of reusable and adaptable wood structures are designed and constructed. It features 19 fully illustrated innovative examples, including the food stall and bus stop at River Cottage, Devon; The Globe at Cern, Switzerland; and the World's smallest cinema. Wood is the ideal material for re-use. It is naturally good looking, durable, simple to assemble and take down, and easy to move. For sustainability, wood is second to none, and recycling a wood structure prolongs its carbon storage and makes an even stronger environmental contribution.
