It's no surprise that Norway -- and everywhere else really -- has started to think up sustainable buildings for the future. There is a proposal to construct a wooden building 16-17 stories tall with carbon neutral construction techniques which will be used for a cultural center for the nation's northern coast by the Norwegian Barents Secretariat.

The idea is to construct a building which will be CO2-neutral, where the concept of the cycles of nature will be preserved. The innovative solutions on modern wooden constructions will stand as a token of the level of competence in the region, says architect Reiulf Ramstad.


The record for the tallest wooden building in the world is currently held by the 43-meter tall St. George’s Cathedral in Guyana.
