New Masonry Building Method Cuts Carbon Emissions


The Russian design studio Zaarchitects have come up with a concept they call “smart masonry” techniques, which would involve using parametric tools and robot arms in the construction of concrete buildings. This method would require the use of less concrete for the construction of more lightweight, precise, efficient and less bulky buildings. Read more »

MIT’s New Concrete Formula Could Cut Carbon Emissions by Half


Being one of the most common construction materials, concrete makes up a large percentage of the world’s carbon emissions. In a time when all must be done to cut these emissions, it is imperative that this percentage is brought down. Simple solutions might be best, and once such solution could be the new formula for making cement, which a team of scientists at MIT have recently come up with and which could cut these emissions in half.

Much of this growth will occur in low-lying deltas and be vulnerable to climate change and flooding. Scarcity of resources requires cities to become increasingly self-sufficient.
