I must somehow have overlooked this one. Apparently since last fall, Canadian Wood Council’s Wood Design & Building magazine has been posting their issues online using a free web-based viewer. If you don’t know this magazine yet – it is a beautifully presented resource for North American wood design and architecture that gets published approximately four times a year.
This online version is already a great step towards making wood design more accessible and giving beautiful design ideas a broader audience. May I suggest as a next step that the entire magazine rack be converted to online viewing. This would pull a very extensive archive out of the darkness of the magazine shelf. Obviously this can very well be funded by ads (see all that grey space around the magazine on my screen – just don’t overdo it). I am looking forward to seeing more!
Here are direct links to the latest issues:
