Green case for tall buildings

Michael Green, principal at Michael Green Architecture has made available his 200+ page book looking at the case for tall wood buildings which shows how safe, economical and environmentally friendly this solution is for the building industry.

When Michael Green toured Australia with WoodSolutions, he spoke passionately about the future of engineered wood products in tall structures. Now, with co-author Eric Karsh he has taken his vision one step further towards fruition.
Through this book the authors encourage architects, engineers and designers to challenge conventional thinking and using wood in large and tall buildings.

The Case For Tall Buildings shows a new way of constructing these buildings using solid panels engineered for strength through laminations of different layers.
