CarbonHouse : Towards a Carbon Ontology

JEC Korea DAY 3 Speaker: Mark GOULTHORPE, Associate Professor @ MIT Dept Architecture

- The macro issues of building and energy use forecast for coming decades: a doubling of buildings by mid-century
- Why the hydrocarbon legacy channelled into composite buildings offers an alternative material paradigm that would have significant environmental and economic benefit at civilizational scale and in a short timeframe
- Research into emerging morphologies of CNT, graphene and CFoam (CarbonHouse) : how composites might be applied to the construction sector
- Perspectives on embodied and in-use energy, life cycle analysis, etc will offer a compelling “why?” as to the benefit composite buildings might offer
