List of tallest wooden buildings

Several wooden skyscraper designs have been designed and built, with the tallest currently being the Sanctuary of Truth, a 105-meter high temple in Pattaya, Thailand.[1] A 40-story residential building 'Trätoppen' has been proposed by architect Anders Berensson to be built in Stockholm, Sweden.

Wooden skyscrapers are estimated to be around a quarter of the weight of an equivalent reinforced-concrete structure as well as reducing the building carbon footprint by 60–75%. Buildings have been designed using cross-laminated timber (CLT) which gives a higher rigidity and strength to wooden structures. CLT panels are prefabricated and can therefore speed up building time.

The tallest actual wooden non-building structure is Gliwice Radio Tower (118 metres), the tallest ever-built wooden non-building structure was the tower of Muhlacker radio transmitter ( 190 metres, destroyed in 1945).
