Tallest Tower of Timber to be Built

London architects Waugh Thistleton have designed a timber residential tower they say will be the tallest wooden housing block in the world at nine stories, and will save 125 tonnes of carbon emissions compared to a concrete structure. It will be built of prefabrcated panels made by KLH of Austria and and it's surface will be made up of 70% waste timber panels by Marley Eternit.
