Sky wood tower structure

​By Aldrin Aguilar

Wood material is one of the kind we are using in building material. it's used in main structure element, floor finishes, ceiling finishes, and more. Without the wood element in our design buildings it doesn't have connections the nature.

Sky Wood Tower Structure is more challenging in terms of vulnerability in structural in terms of earthquake that's why we introduce the earthquake resistant  column which allows every segment to have a free movement. 

The building is divided in segments to have its own movement in terms of earthquake with lean in rubber pad every segment and have a lock system between segment and stair frame.
Sky Wood Tower Structure will become tangible and earthquake resistant.

The proposed project is located in Makati Philippines which have a 1,780,148 population with 38.55 km2 area with a ratio of 1 person to 21 m2. This place is one of the overpopulated urban density in earth.  

Sky Wood Tower Structure have zero building foot print from the materials and construction.


City Above the City architecture competition

Plan B : City Above the City architecture competition 

Metsä Wood challenged architects and students around the world to push the boundaries of modern wood building design in the urban environment. Entrants from 40 countries created their Plan B to urbanisation using wood (Kerto® LVL – laminated veneer lumber) as the main material. The task was to design a wooden extension to an existing urban building. The entries were designed to 69 cities worldwide.
