    Hi all,
    How high can we build with straw bale and adobe and 'super-adobe' and rammed earth? I'm wondering if what Michael Green, the wood-skyscraper guy who spoke at TED, is correct when he says these materials are more for rural and suburban settings? Is wood the only way to go tall and build New Urbanism?
