UBC Earthquake Resistant Concrete

In cities and towns prone to earthquakes, building codes require specific tests for any masonry used to construct new buildings.

Kiss House, Passivhaus, flatpack, prefab

The idea of glamping (camping glamorously) has gone from parody to practice in recent years. Concurrently, the options available for green living have also multiplied. Ecocapsules will arrive in 2018, Volkswagen’s sustainable microbus is coming in 2022, and a Tesla tiny house is currently touring Australia.
