Wooden Skyscrapers

Post by Midtownkid »

Love the look of this design (at least as rendered.) I can totally imagine a few of there clustered around KC. Would look great around Penn Valley Park, along some boulevards on the east side etc. A 'craftsman-inspired' version of this would be amazing at Troost Lake

I was thinking fire would be the big threat, but it sounds like engineers have worked around that problem.

I've heard of wooden skyscrapers before....they're called trees! What a stupid idea.
