- Mass timber is a major structural element of an increasing number of skyscrapers, according to a CTBUH survey; now, the fire codes just have to follow.

The proposed Perkins + Will-designed River Beech Tower, if built, would be the tallest wood structure at 80 stories. Currently in a conceptual phase, the design calls for the use of easily available commercial wood products. (Courtesy Perkins + Will)






The interior of the central atriums would feature bridges that link the tower’s two hemispheres. (Courtesy Perkins + Will)

Plyscraper city: Tokyo to build 350m tower made of wood

https://www.theguardian.com/cities/2...ower-wood-w350

Quote:
.....

- A skyscraper set to be built in Tokyo will become the world’s tallest to be made of wood. The Japanese wood products company Sumitomo Forestry Co is proposing to build a 350 metre (1,148ft), 70-floor tower to commemorate its 350th anniversary in 2041. Japan’s government has long advertised the advantages of wooden buildings, and in 2010 passed a law requiring it be used for all public buildings of three stories or fewer.

- Sumitomo Forestry said the new building, known as the W350 Project, was an example of “urban development that is kind for humans”, with more high-rise architecture made of wood and covered with greenery “making over cities as forests”. The new building will be predominantly wooden, with just 10% steel. Its internal framework of columns, beams and braces – made of a hybrid of the two materials – will take account of Japan’s high rate of seismic activity. The Tokyo-based architecture firm Nikken Sekkei contributed to the design.

I would really like to know where all this lumber is coming from. I just read a very depressing article in The Economist regarding Death of the Amazon, as deforestation has taken off again under the new President. I hope this lumber isn't coming from the Amazon.

There is a proposal (using that loosely) for a 62-story complex in Philadelphia called Timber Towers.

The site is rumored to be the location of Comcast's third Center City highrise.
