Architects Design The World’s Tallest Wooden Skyscraper
By Erwan Xiao, 19 Jun 2013
Architectural firms C.F. Møller and Dinell Johansson and consultant Tyréns have recently collaborated on a proposal to build the world’s tallest wooden skyscraper in Stockholm, Sweden.
They claimed that the 34-story wooden skyscraper would be “cheaper, easier and more sustainable than typical steel and concrete constructions”.
According to C. F. Møller architect Ola Jonsson, “Construction accounts for around 30-40 percent of CO2 produced in the world globally and if you look at the CO2 released in the production of wood it is a lot better than steel or concrete”.
Wood is also a cheaper alternative to steel and concrete, because it costs less to transport.
Another benefit to using wood is that it has increased fire resistance compared to steel or concrete.
