One of my favorite forms of design is architecture. The beauty of a mathematically perfect scheme, natural balance in a man-made form, and the efficient hands-on methods of fitting parts together... They are just a few of the marvels of the art, now being brought into interiors by architects the likes of Ron Arad, Noriaki Okabe, and Zaha Hadid.
CREE Group proposes to build the tallest wooden building, appropriately named the "Life Cycle Tower," for Dornbirn, Austria. Using hybrid-construction that will cut CO2 emissions by 90% and construction time by 50%, the eco-conscious construction of the 30-story building uses sustainable resources such as timber and composite slab (wood/concrete). One of the oldest building materials known to man proves itself to be a timeless mainstay of construction even in the age of skyscrapers.
