Definitions and criteria for the "World’s Tallest Timber Building": call for international participation
Tall building industry has become increasingly interested in the use of timber as a major structural element in skyscrapers. As a result, there are now numerous claims to the title of “tallest timber building,” which have become increasingly difficult to validate, because of the myriad hybrid construction approaches used. Additionally, codes and practices are far from uniform, and in many jurisdictions, they prohibit construction of wooden buildings above a certain height.
Meet us next 29 October in Sydney on this workshop organised by Arup and the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat to discuss the wide range of construction approaches to tall timber buildings.
‘No.8@Arup’ is an annual competition that shines a spotlight on innovative installations and sculptures from talented designers and architectural practices. The idea is a simple one, encouraging emerging architectural practices to provide an opportunity to showcase their creativity in Arup’s London office.
