      Wooden Skyscraper - Russia Nikolai Sutyagin, a former gangster, began building this ‘wooden skyscraper’ in Arkhangelsk, Russia with the intention of it being only a two-story building. But, a trip to see wooden houses in Japan and Norway convinced him that he hadn’t used roof space efficiently enough, so he kept building. Un peu à la douanier Rousseau.

      russia’s wooden skyscraper is believed to be the tallest wooden house in the world at 144 feet and 13 stories. nikolai sutyagin, a former gangster, spent 15 years continuously adding additional floors to his home because he was never satisfied with the way it looked. the house is crumbling, incomplete and under threat of demolition from city authorities. now penniless, sutyagin lives in four poorly heated rooms at the bottom of his wooden log cabin with his wife. many neighbours consider the building a monstrosity.
