It is not just building methods that are being developed; considerable research has gone into utilising new materials. It is the future of green construction building! These include Microalgae, (which provides shade while producing renewable energy), Aerogel Insulation (which is as light as air and has super-insulating properties) and the ultra-strong transparent aluminium.
In the infographic below we learn more about these materials and methods and also look at some buildings that are showing the way. These include the world famous Edge Building in Amsterdam and the Crystal in London.
- The future of construction could involve swarms of robots and 3D printed houses
- Microalgae could help buildings generate energy and provide shade
- Futuristic insulating materials could lower energy needs for buildings
