"In order to maximize the biophilic properties of wood, I make every effort to include references from nature in my designs. Making multipurpose uses out of repurposed wood is another fun way I like to be creative with wood. I am also a firm believer in the 3Rs, reducing waste, reusing, and recycling resources and I try to incorporate the same beliefs into my work."Enlightening the audience about using wood as the best alternative to other construction materials on World Architecture Day, Ar. Sanjiv De, the Director of Designs & Projects of RSP Design Consultants, said–
"Concrete is the second most utilized material in the world after water. The global energy consumption by the construction sector is 37%, and the sector is also responsible for 24% of global carbon emissions. We must switch to using wood instead of other building materials if we want to lower these figures and leave a better Earth for our future generations. When maintained correctly, wood is renewable in nature and significantly reduces carbon emissions. Wood construction is also significantly quicker to complete both on and off-site."
