Panel Discussion

22 October 2018
1:45 PM – 2:45 PM

As the world continues to search for a more sustainable way to build tall, proposals and construction projects using engineered wood have seemingly sprung up overnight. There are now proposals for buildings as high as 350 meters, though the tallest under construction to date has been only 82 meters. This panel of regional and interdisciplinary experts examines where tall timber will go next, and posits what the state of the art will be in 2030.
