Immerse yourself in a world where buildings can be crafted from raw earth or even Mars dust, where sustainability meets skyscrapers, and where the mysteries of the ancient merge with the marvels of the future. Here are 60+ electrifying snippets from the world of building science that are bound to spark your curiosity and wonder
Le Corbusier’s work did some things that contradict high-performance building. For example, his use of pilotis (raised buildings on columns) can lead to increased energy consumption, as the columns need to be heated and cooled in the same way as the rest of the building. Additionally, his use of large windows can lead to heat loss in cold climates, and his use of concrete can lead to moisture problems.
