Multi-Storey Timber-Based Buildings: An International Survey of Case-Studies with Five or More Storeys Over the Last Twenty Years

/ / Resources, Publications

Since the early 2000s, there has been a steady and heterogeneous proliferation throughout several western countries of multi-story timber-based buildings. This thesis confirms that since the first five-storey building was realised in 2004, at least 196 others were built until 2019. With many of these case-studies having been researched for the first time, the goal of this dissertation is to categorize the different international approaches and to define what are the drivers which had an effect on the design.
