Joe Bogushefsky Posted almost 2 years ago Michael Green: Why we should build wooden skyscrapers I cannot get over the thought that Wood is organic and deteriorate over shorter periods than other non-organic materials. I did not get a sense that was addressed in the video. Wooden skyscrapers may have many benefits environmentally. But I question the sustainability of dramatically increasing the uses of wood. To compensate for the organic material in wood, it seems that there must be a higher use of synthetic materials to mitigate the issues with organic materials.
