A high-rise building entirely of wood? In Vienna, of all places? The groundbreaking ceremony for the world’s tallest timber building, located in the Seestadt aspern, took place in 2016. What are the particular characteristics and qualities of this material? What is important when building with wood? And don’t wooden houses catch fire very easily? Our experts show us all the things you can do with wood. This is followed by experiments for us to do ourselves.
