Resource / Architects propose design for first wooden skyscraper in London

By Nikki Kapp / 07 Jun 2016

- timber high-rise construction is gaining support as a necessary innovation for climate change adaptation (wood is carbon sequestering)

- timber is more lightweight than concrete/steel which means quicker assembly and less carbon emissions involved in construction

- the current worlds tallest wooden building is a 14-story appartment block in Norway

- the design being proposed in London as an addition to the Barbican housing estate is 80 storeys high

What might the implications of this be? What related resources have you seen?
