Mass Timber is Taking Wood Design to New Heights

In recent years, timber skyscrapers have been continually touted as one of architecture’s most exciting frontiers.  But how does timber really measure up?

And third, emissions that are naturally absorbed into trees through photosynthesis continues in the building’s engineered wood fibers. So, if built right, architecture can serve as a carbon sink for as long as it stands.
