Tackling Climate Change, Super-Slender Towers, and more, in this Week’s
Round Up 5/30/16 – 6/3/16

standards are enforced, not only will people benefit from greater
reassurance against needless disasters, but the buildings will also
use less energy. This will lead to a vast reduction in carbon
emissions. Learn about tackling climate change, and more, in this
week’s round up of building and construction industry news.
Super-slender towers are being built all over New York — but why the
recent change in design? It has more to do with economics than
engineering. Learn about this trend, and more, in this week’s round up
of architecture and design industry news.
