The World’s Tallest Wood Skyscraper

woodscraper1

This may be the way skyscrapers are built in the future. Instead of using traditional steel, it’d be made out wood. Construction with wood would dump less CO2 into the atmosphere, and it would be cheaper to build.!

One proposed wooden design, from an architecture firm in Stockholm, would be the world’s tallest wood skyscraper. At 34 stories, the building would completely shatter the record for tallest wood building, which¬† stands just six stories.

But don’t worry, not everything in the building would be made of wood. The building would have a concrete core and glass windows.

Take a look at a few images of the proposed concept.

    Cool! A 34-foot skyscraper made almost entirely out of wood. I’m kind of surprised they’re doing this, because of trying to save the trees and all. Oh yeah, and BL, the link to the bike stunt video doesn’t work. And if it does now, it didn’t before. Peechtival!

    Even if buildings are made of wood in the future, I highly doubt they will look like that. I expect people will still paint them…

    That will take a lot of money because of pest control. Those termites are going to love this place and who knows what other wood liking animals will be attracted to this thing. Build a park around it maybe. LOL :)

    Wouldn’t it be easy to catch on fire? Isn’t wood more breakable, destroyable, than steel? I don’t think it will work.

      I agree with you and jkg010, I don’t think it’s very practical.

    Would it be that sturdy? I think wind or storm could break the building completely. Maybe they won’t have people living in it. :) I’ve been to the future, and I’m not telling what happens to the trees. Even if you beg me to tell, I won’t. GO GALLIFREY!!!!!!!!!

    Well sure its cheaper but its not safer the higher the weaker and its easier to have it burned down. 2nd what about it rotting or termites or something like that. over 1 million dollars going into a giant pile of ash is all I see.

      all you have to do for the termites and rot you just cover it in the polish in home depot but It would catch fire.
