The timber age

I read a very interesting article in about wood and architecture. Apart from being a sustainable material new types of engineered timber that is considerably stronger and more stable than regular wood are allowing architects to build bigger and higher.  Some architect even proclaim us entereing ”the timber age” due to it´s qualities and speed of construction. In Sweden Folkhem are planning 18 housings in solid wood where my dear friend Petra Gipp has created two of them.
