The tallest wooden building in the world is in Norway and will be opened in March

If for something it stands out Norway It is for the use of its resources, and for trying to use them in an innovative way. And Norwegian architects are not far behind in this philosophy, linking design and the use of traditional natural materials such as wood, stone or metal.

The last example of this commitment to sustainable design is found in the city of Brumunddal, 150 kilometers from Oslo. There, the tallest wooden building in the world will be inaugurated in March 2019.

Baptized as Mjøstårnet, this structure is a pilot building that wants to demonstrate that it is possible to build high-rise buildings with environmentally friendly materials to reduce greenhouse gases by up to 85% in the production of materials.

The building has 80 meters high and 18 floors They will host apartments, offices, a 72-room hotel and restaurants when it opens next spring.

The creator of the project is called Arthur Buchardt, and with this project it wants to create a green symbol to boost the construction of tall buildings using local resources, local suppliers and sustainable and renewable materials.

An upward trend, seeing that before being inaugurated, this innovative and sustainable building has already received awards such as the Norwegian Tech Award 2018 and The New York Design Awards 2018.
