'Far from being an inherently inferior building material, wood is simply a different one'. Will Pryce, who trained as an architect before becoming a photographer, presents a selection of the finest buildings that illustrate the 'parallel history' of wooden architecture and important regional traditions. The book covers a great diversity of structures including Far Eastern pagodas and pavilions, the Cathedral of the Transfiguration in Karelia, Tudor 'black and white' buildings and New England farmhouses. Previously published as 'Buildings in Wood'
