The plans for what is to be the “largest wooden building in the world” have been revealed. Named the Dutch Mountains, the complex will be situated in the De Run industrial park in Veldhoven, Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

Developed through a multi-disciplinary partnership between technological companies, architects, and service providers, including Studio Marco Vermeulen, Urban XChange, and Strukton, the complex will be completely self-sufficient with closed systems for energy, materials, and water – a ‘total service system’, in essence. Moreover, by utilising wood as the main construction material, the building would also lower its overall carbon footprint.
