Special Issue Information
In the last decade, significant advancements in manufacturing processes, coupled with environmental concerns about the carbon footprint of cement and steel production, have driven the use of sustainable composite products made from renewable resources such as wood, bamboo, and natural fibres in buildings. Research studies have shown the great potential of wood, bamboo, and their composite products with steel and concrete in the construction of tall hybrid buildings. Although the results of such studies are very promising, there are certain aspects—such as fire, connection, durability, and the long-term performance of hybrid systems—which require further investigation in order to make tall-building construction with renewable resources a feasible alternative.
The aims of this Special Issue are to (i) highlight advances in development of sustainable composite products that can be used in conjunction with other structural materials for high-rise construction, and (ii) address challenges in the design and analysis of hybrid systems.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Buildings is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
