British Columbia’s cutting‐edge wood architecture and design are featured in the newly released book, Naturally Wood.

B.C.’s leadership in the wood building sector is progressive and inspiring. Naturally Wood is packed with stories and insights from industry leaders, innovators and thinkers, captured in first-person and by a variety of B.C. writers.
