Heavy Timber Structures:
Creating Comfort in Public Spaces
Anthony F. Zaya & Tim Diener
• Explores the physiological and aesthetic benefits of heavy timber construction in public spaces
• Includes 35 case studies from health care facilities and houses of worship to zoos and museums
• Over 450 color photos, plans, and diagrams demonstrate the artistry of building with heavy timbers, from solid
timbers to glulams and peeled logs
In the triumvirate of dominant structural building materials—wood, metal, and masonry—each has its
advantages, but none are as intertwinedwith the human spirit as wood.Thirty-five public buildings illustrate
howheavy timber framing can address familiar programmatic issues such as structure, economics, aesthetics,
and sustainability. Timber framing can also have a positive effect on human emotions and physiology. In
addition to being warm to the touch, wood building interiors have been widely proven to reduce blood
pressure and heart rate and to speed convalescence in health care facilities. More than 450 photos, plans,
and diagrams show how framing from solid timbers to glulams and peeled logs are designed for durability
and expressiveness. The finished projects aptly demonstrate what it means not only to shape buildings, but
how they shape us.
