Architectural Record magazine’s Continuing Education Centre recently published an online summary report on the use of mass wood in tall buildings worldwide, including a 10-story wood apartment building in Australia, an eight-story apartment building in the U.K., and an eight-story office building in Austria. The report was sponsored by ReThink Wood.

It refers extensively to another report by Canadian architect Michael Green of MGA and J. Eric Karsh from Equilibrium Consulting Inc. of Vancouver — The Case for Tall Wood Buildings: How Mass Timber Offers a Safe, Economical, and Environmentally Friendly Alternative for Tall Building Structures.
