If I didn't work at Autodesk and could have any job, I would watch and review TED talks. TED talks are fascinating. They are educational. No one is worse off for having watched one. So one entitled "Why we should build wooden skyscrapers" recently caught my eye.
Almost half our green house gases come from buildings. When one thinks of sustainability, one thinks of saving trees, so why suggest that we build out of wood? There are several factors. Check out my infographic of facts I obtained from the video.
Since wood captures CO2 and concrete/steel emit CO2, with more and more people needing houses moving to cities, the choice is clear: build skyscrapers out of wood. Autodesk is proud to promote sustainability through the analysis capabilities included in our software offerings.
