The Super-Plywood Structurecomments (2) June 5th, 2012 in Blogs
Saw this in the Times last night. The idea that you could build an apartment building with only plywood is interesting, but I'm skeptical about its sustainability. And they don't mention insulation or energy efficiency, which is a little odd considering that the Europeans are usually 'way ahead of the game in that department. What's everyone else think?
PS - I was directed by a colleague to the graphic associated with this article, where it's shown that they do insulate, applying rigid foam onto the building's exterior.
