Rising high with wooden skyscrapers

Wooden housing is reaching ever more impressive heights: are "woodscrapers" really the buildings of the future?

The "Wildspitze" in Hamburg has an estimated completion date of 2021. At 64 metres, this 18-floor tower will be Germany's tallest wooden building.

It has been suggested that the – theoretical – height limit is around 1,000 metres.
In terms of climate protection, using wood as a building material makes sense.
