Jenga-like high-rise connects residents with the world
Let's pretend for a moment that buildings are built out of Jenga blocks. For the past century or so, skyscrapers have more or less been built from pieces that are uniformly stacked on top of one another vertically, creating solid, streamlined structures. We did this because it was efficient. Now imagine that someone came along, plucked a few of those Jenga blocks out of the tower, flipped them horizontally, stuck them back into the edifice, and walked away. What are you left with? Something that looks a lot like the tower that architect Ole Scheeren is proposing for Vancouver.

Vancouver architecture firm proposes timber skyscraper for Paris skyline
Vancouver Sun

At 35 stories, the wooden tower Green's team is proposing would have to be approved as an exception to Paris's existing height limits for wood structures, but he hopes winning the bid could be the "Eiffel-Tower moment" for the acceptance of tall timber buildings he has been advocating for close to a decade.
