Soak up carbon into beautiful, healthy buildings that heal the climate "Green buildings" that slash energy use and carbon emissions are all the rage, but they aren't enough. The hidden culprit is embodied carbon - the carbon emitted when materials are mined, manufactured, and transported - comprising some 10% of global emissions. With the built environment doubling by 2030, buildings are a carbon juggernaut threatening to overwhelm the climate. It doesn't have to be this way. Like never before in history, buildings can become part of the climate solution. With biomimicry and innovation, we can pull huge amounts of carbon out of the atmosphere and lock it up as walls, roofs, foundations, and insulation. We can literally make buildings out of the sky with a massive positive impact. The New Carbon Architecture is a paradigm-shifting tour of the innovations in architecture and construction that are making this happen. Office towers built from advanced wood products; affordable, low-carbon concrete alternatives; plastic cleaned from the oceans and turned into building blocks. We can even grow insulation from mycelium. A tour de force by the leaders in the field, The New Carbon Architecture will fire the imagination of architects, engineers, builders, policy makers, and everyone else captivated by the possibility of architecture to heal the climate and produce safer, healthier, and more beautiful buildings.

Övrig information

Bruce King has been a structural engineer for 35 years, designing buildings of every size and type around the world. Bruce's decades of research into alternative building systems has led to building code changes in California and globally. He is the author of Buildings of Earth and Straw , Making Better Concrete , and the landmark Design of Straw Bale Buildings . Bruce lives in San Rafael, California. Erin McDade is a Program Manager for Architecture 2030. She leads Architecture 2030's Products Challenge, is founding chair of the Embodied Carbon Network, and is on the board of the Carbon Leadership Forum. She is also leading AIA+2030 Online Series development, helping design professionals create zero carbon buildings. Ann Edminster is a leading international expert on zero-energy efficient (ZNE) green homes. She assists design teams in pursuing ZNE performance goals, has developed curricula for design and construction of ZNE homes, and is a frequent keynote speaker, presenter, and teacher at conferences, universities, non-profits, and utilities. Catherine De Wolf is a postdoctoral scientist working on low carbon structural design at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne. She has spoken about low carbon building materials at TEDx in Paris and when receiving the Innovators Under 35 Award in Belgium. Kathrina Simonen is an Associate Professor in the Department of Architecture at the University of Washington with over 15 years of professional practice experience as an architect and structural engineer. She is founding director of the Carbon Leadership Forum, an industry-academic collaboration focused on linking LCA to design and construction practice and has authored a handbook, Life Cycle Assessment, a primer for building industry professionals looking to learn about LCA. Barbara Rodriguez Droguett has devoted over a decade to the creation and improvement of analytic tools to assess carbon in buildings. In 2015 she received the National Award for Sustainable Construction Leaders under 35 from the Chilean Chamber of Construction. She is currently pursuing a PhD at the University of Washington. Larry Strain , Siegel & Strain Architects. Larry has a 40+ year background in sustainable design and studied ecological systems at Evergreen State College and the Farallones Institute. He wrote a Guideline Specification for Green Materials, which became part of Building Green's GreenSpec Directory. For the past seven years, Larry has focused on reducing the total carbon footprint of our buildings. Frances Yang is a structures and materials sustainability specialist in the Energy + Sustainability group of the San Francisco office of Arup. Frances uses her studies in structural engineering, life cycle assessment, architecture for the environment, and green chemistry in leading the Sustainable Materials Consulting practice for the Arup Americas region. Andrew Lawrence is the leading timber specialist at Arup, a member of the European Timber Design Code Committee, and a judge for the UK Wood Awards. Andrew lectures worldwide on the structural use of timber and is currently working with timber industry bodies in the USA, UK, China, southeast Asia, and Australia, to help make timber a mainstream construction material. Jason Grant has been a leader in the sustainable forestry and green building movements for 25 years. Jason co-founded EcoTimber, one of the first companies in the world to bring certified ecological forest products to market. He has long advocated for sustainable forestry and responsible wood use as a member Sierra Club's Forest Certification and Green Building Team. Chris Magwood is obsessed with making the best, most energyefficient, carbon sequestering, beautiful and inspiring buildings without wrecking the whole darn planet in the attempt. Chris is currently the executive director of The Endeavour Centre, a notfor- profit sustainable building school in Peterboroug
