Michael Green Architecture (MGA) just unveiled a proposal for a carbon neutral wooden skyscraper in Paris that, if constructed, will be the world’s tallest wood building. Created in collaboration with DVVD and real estate developer REI France , the wooden skyscraper—dubbed the Baobab—was designed as part of the city’s Réinventer Paris , a competition seeking innovative and environmentally friendly urban projects. The designers estimate the 35-story wood high-rise could sequester 3,700 metric tons of carbon—an amount equivalent to keeping 2,207 cars off the road for a year.
