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

Wooden building that tall? Who comes with these ideas? Makes more sense to have a metal structure and composite materials other than a full wooden building. A building fire throws the hypothesis to dust.
The future of Sustainable Development is today! We are meant to live in a sustainable world that is environmentally, socially, energetically and economically sustainable!

bullshit..it takes like decades to grow a tree.....who is going to regrow it unless it's on your own tree farm...pretty sure they will end up cutting down trees everywhere and never grow it back because when you regrow it in public areas, it's not yours...

And plants absorb carbon dioxide, and carbon dioxide absorbs much more heat from the sun, so having more plants can also decrease temperatures

This episode brought to you by the Lumber Industry. Why would you cut down one of our most important carbon sequestrators to build things? With abundant clean electricity, we can instead pull more carbon out of the environment and make much stronger and lighter building materials than wood.. Carbon fiber stone for example. Hell, concrete!

Modern, *cross-laminated bamboo beams* and panels are stronger than steel. They can last longer than concrete too, because concrete cracks with age. Only concrete with glass-fiber could be comparable, but not better, because bamboo panels have stronger fiber, if fabricated well. The fabricated wooden and bamboo panels and beams will be a huge market, because they are easier to process during construction, which makes construction more flexible.

Wooden skyscraper? That's real bullshit if you think about it. The reason we plant trees is deforestation and global warming! We dont plant them to build wooden scyscraper. There is a plenty of wood in Europe and Canada so let's transport them to the other side of world. Sounds very sustainable... My country is going trough massive deforestation for economic reasons in last decade,.. these are the reasons.
ash (3 months ago)
If we build something like this we need also people that can control the insects and other animals there. People that knows how to work in a garden. If we don't have those people the buildongs will collapse.

structures will be grown & according to algorithms of nature, and man, but man is nature. as the structure nears completion in growth, preservative will be taken up. perhaps, metallic salts thus, best of both worlds

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 (7 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.
