 Summary:
 Wood is probably one of the most often worldwide used materials. The contemporary buildings are often designed combining different materials such as brick, stone, earth, straw, glass, steel and concrete. Among all of them only wood offer warmth, specific texture and irreplaceable tactile feeling of cosiness. The contemporary wood industry offer new possibility for different architectural requirements. Increasingly important aspect of architectural design in 21st. century is low cost, sustainable, energy efficient, zero emission of CO2 and high esthetical value of building. This paper discusses the different typology of wooden pavilions, their aesthetical, functional and structural perception. The aim is to present the important aspect of wood as building material in a perception of rather small architectural building as pavilion in a public places are. These wooden small buildings still hold significant role in design of open public areas (parks, squares). Wood as building material is ecological, sustainable, energy efficient and user friendly, can be from renewable sources and still gives tremendous capabilities of design until recently unimaginable free form shapes.
