Latest Concept – Wooden Infrastructures

Sustainability, ecological and bioclimatic: wooden infrastructure towers could not be further from reality. New concepts with materials provided, this is the philosophy of the new sustainable architecture.

It never has put on the table wood as main structural material in the construction of skyscrapers until today, and are the architects and teams with more wit those who are taking reality. New concepts with materials provided, this is the philosophy of the new sustainable architecture.

One of the pioneers in this field was Canadian architect Michael Green, an imaginary project proposed remodeling of the famous Empire State Building in New York become a wooden tower, made entirely with plywood LVL (laminated veneer lumber), a product made of multiple layers of wood whose fibers are oriented in one direction.

After that, his architectural engineering DVVD MGA and have been associated with Paris REI developer to develop the tallest wooden building in the world and to be built in Paris, part of the innovative project ‘reinvent Paris’ whose aimed at easing the problems of urban housing in the city.

Although the really high wooden buildings are still conceptual projects they are being built wooden structures a bit all over the world.

A great project and great example of such features is Treet tower in Bergen, Norway, is scheduled to be the tallest wooden building so far, is scheduled for completion later this year.

Another of the great pros for wooden infrastructures is its high insulation capacity and slow combustion wood components smoldering forming a natural protective layer that slows its destruction, nevertheless in the case of building Wooden skyscraper would benefit from additional protection in the form of fire sprinklers and drywall. Currently they continue to conduct performance tests, such as seismic testing with very positive results.
