Forest 4.0 Balancer
The Forest 4.0 Balancer project is set to explore relationships between forests, carbon footprints and construction.
Based on the embodied emissions of the City of London’s Leadenhall Building (92,210 metric tonnes of C02), Annular invites anyone involved in sustainability, timber, building and forests to speculate on what they could do construction-wise with 92,210 metric tonnes, given the opportunity.
Read the report, check the photos, and watch the videos of this year’s Pioneering the Potential. Featuring Flimwell Park, (the Architectural Ensemble) from Switzerland, Lukas Imhof, London Metropolitan University’s Weald prototype HomeGrown House 2 project and further speakers.
Additional Annular sections to be added. Watch this space.
Annular – trees increase their size each year, adding Annular Rings (or Growth Rings) year on year. Much can be learnt about trees, woods and wood from tree rings that is otherwise inaccessible.
