Norway is one of the countries that maintains
its policy of building sustainable and
environmentally friendly buildings
, such as, the first skyscraper called Mjøstårnet, the tallest wooden building
in the world
.

Building with sustainable materials

The
architect Arthur Buchardt, had the ambition to demonstrate
the feasibility of constructing a building like this with sustainable
materials
, while being respectful with the environment and taking advantage
of local products offered by nature, plus proving that it is possible to reduce
the emission of greenhouse gases up to 85%.

The Mjøstårnet
building will have a total area of 11,300
square meters with 18 floors (80 meters high)
, in which will provide:
housing, restaurant services, common areas, offices and a hotel. Alongside, it
will have a pool of 4,700 square meters.

The inauguration of this skyscraper expects to be on March
2019
. This skyscraper already has been recognized for
international awards on its design and will be located in Brumunddal, 159
kilometers from Oslo.
In
history, wood has been the material with
greater versatility and accessibility for man to construct their edifications
.
Experts such as, Armando Iachini,
headmaster of Construcciones Yamaro
,
highlights its qualities, as well as, the warmth and unique texture offered by
this material in any kind of construction.
The writer and naturalist Richard Mabey in his book ‘Wood’,
demonstrates how different buildings based on this material can show the diversity
of these constructions manufactured with planks and slats also these
constructions have showed the strength and intelligence of wood as a material.
In the
future, will be built in Tokyo the W350 with
a height of 350 meters and 70 floors
, whose inauguration is estimated for
2041, where housing, services and hotel buildings will also be available.

The
new
modular wooden houses show
clear advantages over conventional constructions
that present different
designs and multiple dimensions; prefabricated at the same time, these are
gaining ground in the real estate market.

Known
as Hortum Huts, they initially were
created for office solutions, guest rooms or an extra room. The walls are usually
composed of prefabricated wooden panels with OSB or tongue-and-groove cladding.
The
roof in addition to this cladding includes the EPDM material, ideal for huts
with flat roofs that facilitate the water drainage. In the same way, inside of it has a great flexibility for
personalization
from adding a window to dividing spaces for bathrooms and
other needs.
