OAS1S “treescrapers” are modern skyscrapers inspired by trees

OAS1S “treescrapers” are modern skyscrapers inspired by trees | Building with wood | Scoop.it

OAS1S has introduced a unique concept for the future of urban green living:  a 21st century home that merges architecture and nature into one. The OAS1S houses are inspired by trees that act as modern skyscrapers. These “treescrapers” consist of wood and leaves, collect sun and water, plus provide oxygen, shelter and food. The tall, slim and detached houses have average tree-like dimensions of 6 x 6 x 12 m, with spectacular vegetation facades. The basic architecture is shaped as a number 1, and gives people the experience of being one with nature. Each home can be combined with others to create forest-like districts that mix trees with tree-like houses, in an organic and public, compact and car-free lay-out.  Construction is completed using recycled wood, organic high-value insulation, green walls and triple glazing to create off-grid, 100% self-sufficient homes.

An Irregular Polygonal Addition

An Irregular Polygonal Addition | Building with wood | Scoop.it
Norwegian firm TYIN tegnestue Architects has designed an irregularly shaped addition for a family home in the Norwegian city of Trondheim ... On the ground floor the project created a spacious entry area with a combined bath- and laundry-room. The second floor of the addition adds a new multipurpose room with a high ceiling. This constitutes a break with the monotonous section common to this type of house from the 1950s.

TALL WOOD SURVEY: Identifying and Analyzing the Obstacles of Perception

TALL WOOD SURVEY: Identifying and Analyzing the Obstacles of Perception | Building with wood | Scoop.it
Tall wood buildings are becoming increasingly prevalent around the world, and yet, they are conspicuously missing from the U.S. skyline. Antiquated building code restrictions have put the United States behind its Canadian and European counterparts, preventing the U.S. from even considering the use of wood as the primary structure in a tall building. Recent initiatives from various wood manufacturers and sponsors are pushing back on these restrictions and providing the research and support needed to move engineered wood products forward. This article aims to address the public’s perception of engineered wood to determine if there are perception barriers that may be impeding advancement of tall wood buildings. The research methods included literature review and survey. The survey methodology included a web-based questionnaire, which more than 500 respondents completed. The general survey population identified flammability as the greatest perception barrier to building tall with wood, followed by strength, deforestation, and durability. However, respondents that identified themselves as more familiar with engineered wood products characterized moisture as the greatest barrier, followed by insurance, cost, and durability. This data revealed that public education and awareness campaigns, which can help increase familiarity with building materials, may contribute towards overcoming these perception barriers and pave the way for building code revisions related to engineered wood products.

Prefab wooden house from the Portuguese MIMA Housing

Prefab wooden house from the Portuguese MIMA Housing | Building with wood | Scoop.it

MIMA Housing uses modular construction methods, the secret for its fast production. This methodology allows us to quickly assemble the house indoors so we can test all the components and ensure that everything corresponds to our high standard planning. After this process, the house is ready to be assembled on site within a short time.

Enrico De Angelis's insight:
a very nice, complete, document about its structure, pros, and cons.

APA "Build a Better Home" series: "Walls" | Building with wood | Scoop.it
APA - The Engineered Wood Association APA is a nonprofit trade association, representing structural wood products manufacturers in North America (plywood, oriented strand board (OSB), glued-laminated timber (glulam), wood I-joists, structural composite lumber).
Enrico De Angelis's insight:
What is nice, from our point of view is that they don't offer only market support: they do (applied) research (mainly for certification, testing and design) and knowledge transfer. Many technologists, as well as structural analysts, not only practitioners, will welcome the last of the "Build a Better Home" series: "Walls" (downloadable for free). Few good, clear details, concepts and facts.
