The nature of building has changed rather dramatically over the past 100 years. At a time when sustainability is a trendy topic one might think that we have advanced in our ability to build lasting structures, but that isn't the case for most of the industry. For the past couple of years I have been following, along with many others, the projects of Clay Chapman of Hope for Architecture. One of Clay's goals is to make permanence a part of the industry again. Many believe that in order to build a lasting structure you will spend significantly more than you would in building using typical construction methods, but that does not have to be the case.
In the video below you can see one of Clay's recent projects as well as hear a few notes on their findings from that project.
