Quote: Wood is the oldest of construction materials. It’s elemental, and humankind’s relationship with it runs deep, but in a very literal sense, we’ve been burnt by it one too many times. After the Great Fire of London wiped out 80% of the city, the London Building Act of 1667 asserted all houses were to be built in brick or stone. Since then, steel, concrete and glass have all come to dominate our city skylines, but timber is set to make an unlikely return. Endquote
