Wooden Building In Norway Will Be Tallest Of Its Kind


The world’s tallest wooden building is being constructed in Kirkines, Norway, and will serve as the town’s cultural center in addition to housing energy-efficient offices for the Barents Secretariat (the organization that commissioned the structure).

The building will stand 17 stories, and will be created using sustainable materials. The project is intended to act as a model of green construction as well as a center for diplomacy serving the many cultures that converge in that area of the world. Norwegian firm Reiulf Ramstad Architects will be handling the project.
