Advantages of the wooden city
In the continuation of the statement, the reasons for using timber to reduce the environmental challenges of urban development in Sweden are mentioned. First of all, wood emits much less carbon than metal and concrete, and as a result, wooden structures emit fewer pollutants. Another noteworthy point is that the wood used in this project is non-combustible, which is an important point considering the increase in forest fires due to climate change.
The wooden city of the Swedish company, which will have an area of more than 250,000 square meters, will have 7,000 office spaces and 2,000 houses. Restaurants and shops also fill its other spaces.
