A Canadian architect is getting back to his roots with a proposal for the world’s tallest wooden skyscraper. The 275-foot, approximately $66.4 million timber building could rise in Vienna, Austria as early as next year, according to Curbed.

The Canadian architect Michael Green introduced the concept via a TED talk that has been viewed more than a million times. “I believe that wood is the most technologically advanced material I can build with,” Green said in his talk. “It just happens to be that Mother Nature holds the patent.”
