The future skyline will be one of ‘plyscrapers’

Enthusiasm for tall timber buildings 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 is driven by advanced solutions in materials technology. In particular engineered timber products such as Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) and Glued Laminated Timber (Glulam) are massively expanding architects’ possibilities.

In the table below are some of the most iconic projects of tall timber buildings and skyscrapers worldwide.
