Carbon-Neutral ‘Woodcube’ Building Makes Steel Obsolete

 With a hefty carbon footprint, steel has fallen out of favor for large building projects, and many designers are replacing it with wood with great results.

Woodcube is a 5-story carbon-neutral apartment block constructed almost entirely from wood by German architectural firm Architekturagentur. With the exception of some fixtures, and parts of the foundations and elevator shaft, the wooden apartment building was built without glue or chemical treatment of any kind. The result is a high-performance building that’s easier to recycle.
