By 2050, two-thirds of us wil be living in cities, so architects are taking inspiration from nature to build more sustainable skylines.
How Eyes Evolved to See the World Differently
The Wood Innovation and Design Centre
Tokyo to build world's tallest timber tower
“The 70-story tower will be a hybrid structure made from 90% wooden materials. A steel vibration-control framework will underpin the design -- an important feature in a city where earthquakes are frequent.”
A Lusher and Greener Singapore (URA and NParks Introduce Schemes to Promote Skyrise Greenery)
"The greening of Singapore will literally move to greater heights with the launch of URA's programme, LUSH. NParks is also introducing a pilot incentive scheme to encourage existing building owners to green up their rooftops."

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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
Nothing new... permiculture is the only way!!!.. Not taxes.. Not Mars... We are going to be able to employ drones to garden every available space. I am not going to be alive but my grand kids will be inheriting my land and my methods.. Peace ✌️ and love for all!!
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.
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).
You do not need to calculate payroll premium if your policy is on a stipulated billing cycle.
Sample Payroll Report.
However, if your policy is not yet on a stipulated billing cycle, this is typically what you will see when we send you a payroll report.
A split payroll report is sent when there is an Anniversary Rating Date on your policy, which is the month and day that rates, rating plans and rating systems are initially applied to a policy in force and each annual anniversary thereafter. Your payroll will need to be annotated for each period specified.
Sample Split Payroll Report.
We will need a complete employee job description before we add the classification to the policy. Please do not report payroll in the new classification until it has been reviewed and endorsed to your policy.
Job Duties Questionnaire.
We recommend you keep a copy of your previous payroll reports and payroll records for at least seven years, as you would your tax records.
Submitting Payroll Reports.
There are three different ways to submit your payroll reports.
