By 2050, two-thirds of us wil be living in cities, so architects are taking inspiration from nature to build more sustainable skylines.

If you think that some of the tallest towers in the world are impressive now, then you’ve seen nothing yet. Not only will the next generation of skyscrapers be in amongst the tallest in the world, with one becoming THE tallest and by a long way, they are also far greener too. Anyways, read the below. This might help. https://www.namasteui.com/skyscrapers-of-the-future/ -- Regards, Sourav Basak Namaste UI

Nice video, but you can't compare US and Canada to Europe. By that you try to degrade European countries which are completely different from one another which you cannot classify together. You can compare North America to Europe. Continent - Continent, Country - Country.

Imagine how beautiful future cities will be. Perhaps all the jobs dissapearing will be replaced with gardening jobs in a skyscraper. If only you could structure society that way. I'd like that ;)

I like the idea of green buildings in Singapore. But the one in Canada which it is built by massive amount of timbers would kill the first purpose of green environment preservation by killing so many natural trees!! What's a dumber and dumber architect!
John Wang (2 months ago)
A few decades ago, it was popular to have central atriums. Unfortunately, it turned out that having that central green area created a chimney effect in fires. These "green" ideas look great but seems to do little in terms of fire breaks. Sheath a skyscraper with a greenhouse shroud creates another fire chimney. These green areas need to be broken up and not connected.

BUILDING FROM WOOD! CONSTIPATION OF THE BRAIN AND DIARRHEA OF THE MOUTH!! As a civil engineer myself, I have to say, building from wood is the STUPIDEST idea I've ever even thought I could ever hear. We have been trying to move away from water sensitive, insect sensitive, mold sensitive, fire sensitive material with less strength through human history for good reason. We have even begun building houses out of ICF and steel for those reasons. It's actually more environmentally damaging when you treat wood with all the dangerous chemicals to make them somewhat resistant to termites and mold... and they still burn and get soggy, so you now have to spend even more resources and make buildings even more expensive and complex to protect the entire structure from moisture and water, with even more costs down the line. Truly stupid.

Anarcho-fascist (3 months ago)
Shihab Ahmed yes, you should look up how strong bamboo really is and how fast it can grow.
Shihab Ahmed (3 months ago)
and u sure bamboo can support the structure

TheRagingInfernape (4 months ago)
Given the impressively high wood growth and with the potential high demand for wood, what he says is true. We are given more of a reason and a chance to reforest. Let's see when America will actually listen. Maybe our next President will take notice.

Vlad Vorobchievici (5 months ago)
hell yes, let's cut down all the forests and make some skyscrapers out of them but plant some gardens on them so we don't damage the natural environment ;)
Manikanta Bejgam (5 months ago)
But problem with this is that we need land to cultivate more trees and by cutting trees which have already grown results in deforestation and amount of oxygen released into environment decreases. Human mentality is that he finds solution to particular problem but fails to identify it's demerits in future.
Ariella Star (5 months ago)
Wood grows slow though. What about deforestation? It doesn't make sense. I like wooden buildings better too... but will the trees grow fast enough to fullfill the high demand of building with wood?

Bruh they're cutting down trees, in 2050 we'll probably have little trees.
Sahil Pethe (5 months ago)
I have a suggestion: use wood (obviously cross sectioned composited resin inside) but then coated with carbon fiber from the outside so that it LITERALLY becomes as strong as steel or even more than that. It will also be cheaper and environmentally friendly if we plant a new tree for every tree being cut down. You might now know about this but the world is actually running out of usable sand (the type of sand which is used for production of concrete which is solely seashore sand).
