Mungkinkah Bangun Pencakar Langit dari Kayu?




Awal bulan ini, arsitek Michael Green menyampaikan kuliah umum dengan topik menarik. Green mencoba "mengawinkan" kultur pembangunan gedung-gedung pencakar langit di kota-kota besar dengan sumber daya yang sebenarnya terbarukan tetapi kerap disepelekan, yaitu kayu. Ia melontarkan pertanyaan sederhana, "Mengapa ketinggian bangunan-bangunan yang terbuat dari kayu hanya beberapa lantai, sementara kayu di alam bebas tinggi luar biasa?"

Menurut Green, kayu berasal dari pepohonan yang tumbuh karena tenaga matahari. Selama usianya, pepohonan memberikan oksigen bagi makhluk hidup di sekitarnya, sembari menyimpan karbon dioksida. Karbon dioksida tersebut dibebaskan ketika pohon tumbang dan mengalami dekomposisi. Dengan membuat bangunan dari kayu, kayu tidak perlu terurai dan mengeluarkan karbon dioksida.

10 places to watch Architecture/Design Lectures Online


Searching online for inspirational lectures in one place is impossible. It is extremely hard to locate a good source website which has a series of lectures from renowned architects, designers, thinkers, scientists or philosophers. Hours are wasted just filtering through the search results. And when you do find it, you are exhausted and want to procrastinate, exactly just what I ended up doing when I was assigned to make a list of the top 10 places to watch Architecture/Design Lecture videos. If you have missed a lecture at your university this could actually help you out. It is a perfect way to spend some extra free time searching for inspiration, especially when you are having one of those sleepless nights.   Here is the LIST!
A very well known architectural school famous for its design philosophy, has archived most of the lectures they hold. The duration of the films they have is between an hour and two. The minimum length of the video is 8 minutes, of a recording from 1976 a Lecture given by Rem Koolhas. To name a few other well known speakers, they have Peter Cook, Zaha Hadid Architects, Barnard Tschumi and Moshe Safdie. Every film has the name of the speaker, the topic and duration listed.
