Wooden skyscraper city being proposed
Designed to be environmentally friendly, Anders Berensson Architects described the proposed new district as a "wooden skyscraper city" bringing 5,000 new homes to the central docklands area of Masthamnen. Constructed from cross-laminated timber (CLT), the 31 towers would rise above the development as self-contained city blocks containing 3,000 homes and 30 restaurants.
With its sustainable credentials and flexible design applications, architects around the world are experimenting with the potential of CLT. Canadian studio Michael Green Architecture has plans for a massive office complex made from CLT on a waterfront in New Jersey, and Penda has mooted designs for a timber high rise planted with trees for Toronto.
