Well these examples by some seem to suggest this, as seen in an article published on “” and The Guardian. It features the use of innovative Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) in construction, which has pushed the boundaries in UK, Mainland Europe and Australia. Whilst the use of CLT is gradually breaking ground- time will determine how fast it will take to reach the heights that concrete and Steel have attained. Until then, note these examples of successful use of CLT in modern Architectural design; and do watch out for further updates on CLT.
