Architecture firm C. F. Møller has proposed building the tallest wooden building in the world in Stockholm, Sweden. The design calls for a 34-story wooden skyscraper that would stand 28 stories taller than the United States’ tallest wooden structure. The building, constructed from wooden pillars, walls, beams and ceilings—encompassed within a glass shell—would be better for the environment compared to steel-and-concrete construction, the designers say. The structure would have a concrete core.
