List of tallest wooden buildings

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Several wooden skyscraper designs have been designed and built, with the tallest currently being the Brock Commons, an 18-story wooden dormitory at the University of British Columbia in Canada. A 40-story residential building 'Trätoppen' has been proposed by architect Anders Berensson to be built in Stockholm, Sweden.

Wooden skyscrapers are estimated to be around a quarter of the weight of an equivalent reinforced-concrete structure as well as reducing the building carbon footprint by 60–75%. Buildings have been designed using cross-laminated timber (CLT) which gives a higher rigidity and strength to wooden structures. CLT panels are prefabricated and can therefore speed up building time.

The tallest actual wooden non-building structure is Gliwice Radio Tower (118 metres), the tallest ever-built wooden non-building structure was the tower of Muhlacker radio transmitter ( 190 metres, destroyed in 1945).
