Several wooden skyscraper designs have been designed and built, with the tallest currently being the Sanctuary of Truth, a 105-metre-high (344 ft) temple in Pattaya, Thailand.[1] The previous record holder, the 67-metre-high (220 ft) Pagoda of Fogong Temple, was built 900 years ago.

The tallest standing wooden structure is Gliwice Radio Tower (118 metres or 387 feet). The tallest ever wooden structure was the tower of Mühlacker radio transmitter (190 metres or 620 feet, destroyed in 1945).
