The largest wooden skyscraper in the world will be built in Sydney

Australian IT company Atlassian will set up its new headquarters in a modern 40-story glue-laminated timber and steel building that will become the world's tallest wooden skyscraper.

Glued laminated timber is made by gluing from individual lamellas, which allows you to create structures of various configurations and sizes from it. It is an environmentally friendly material that can absorb carbon in urban environments.

The design of an unusual skyscraper is a joint project of the architectural firms SHoP (New York, USA) and BVN (Australia). The exterior of the 180-meter building is a combination of steel and glass with a tiered roof and gardens at the top.

In addition to the carbon-neutral design, the building will run on renewable energy sources, the architects said. The windows will be shaded and the entire building will be equipped with solar panels. The skyscraper will house employees of several companies. The total number of employees with time can reach 25, 000 people.

While the project is in the drawings. Atlassian will publish more details on its development plans shortly. The company has not yet announced how much it will cost to build this unique building.
