A Glimpse into the Future: Mass Timber Projects

Enthusiasm for solid wood architecture (also known as mass timber architecture) and wood engineering is spreading all over the world. A new generation of architects and designers are now determined to promote timber as the material of choice for a wide range of innovative and challenging projects.

This boom in tall wood buildings’ design and planning is driven by advanced solutions in materials technology. In particular engineered timber products such as Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) - a structural two-way spanning solid wood panel - and Glued Laminated Timber (Glulam) - manufactured from layers of parallel timber laminations - are massively expanding Architects’ possibilities.

In the table below, we have collected some of the most iconic projects of tall timber buildings and skyscrapers worldwide.
