Living cities that are made of timber and trees are definitely a healthier and better alternative to what we currently have. \u201cConcrete jungles\u201d is an accurate description of what contemporary cities has become. Despite the dominance of concrete as a building material in all major city, Penda architecture studio has proposed a vision that can forever change that. A Unique Vision for a Better City \u201cOur cities are an assembly of steel, concrete and glass,\u201d says Penda partner Chris Precht. \u201cIf you walk through the city and suddenly see a tower made of wood and plants, it will create an interesting contrast.\u201d In a world where concrete is the norm, this is a very interesting concept. Living cities that are made of timber and trees are definitely a healthier and better alternative to what we currently have. Thanks to the rapid breakthroughs in timber construction technologies, building taller timber buildings is now a possibility. Penda\u2019s new tower proposal is a proof of what is possible and a way to a better future. The proposed tower is built using a modular system of wooden units that are combined together to create a structure that is 62 meters high and offers 4500 sq.m of residential space. Each housing unit in that tower will have a large garden that will be a home to plenty of plants and trees. A More Efficient Timber Construction Technique Penda\u2019s timber tower is proposed to be assembled off-site. The parts that will be assembled together to create the tower will be shipped to the site and stacked around the tower\u2019s core, ready for assembly. After the tower\u2019s skeleton is built, the tower\u2019s fa\u00e7ade panels will be installed and sealed. This method was chosen for its clear advantages over traditional construction method. Not only is this method faster, it\u2019s also cleaner, produces less waste and is more environmentally friendly. With such rapid advancements in timber construction technologies and engineered timber being more widely adopted, seeing such project become a reality can be much sooner than most people expect.
