Higher, screwless & rethought
The trend is towards higher and possibly screwless wooden structures. Wooden constructions are revolutionizing the construction industry, especially the planned wooden high-rise buildings. Richard Woschitz, as a leading civil engineer, has been part of the core team of HoHo Wien right from the start: "One of the biggest challenges stems from the fact that you can not weld in timber construction. This connection nodes that cause strong tensile forces to implement extremely complicated. For this reason, we go up with a massive reinforced concrete core to dock on this the wooden structure. "In the visualization you can see how the wooden structure are docked to the three components of HoHo Vienna.
