Mass timber projects are being built in cities around the world, driving increased curiosity about the innovative building material and how mass timber can transform the built environment. UPM, a Finnish forest industry company, published an infographic designed to explain and share mass timber’s growing role as a sustainable building material of choice around the world.
Would Wood Do? cites mass timber’s carbon footprint, seismic durability, ease of use, and performance benefits with regard to fire safety and sound as leading comparative advantages and presents a roster of the world’s tallest mass timber buildings.
These five stunning buildings are just a small sample of the many mass timber projects around the world. For a closer look at impressive low-rise, mid-rise and taller wood projects, browse the Think Wood Project Gallery.
