GOMOS-SYSTEM-by-Samuel-Goncalves-1Modular architecture is becoming increasingly popular for good reason – instead of lengthy construction time, homes can be completed in just a few days. Gomos is a new modular building system composed of concrete units produced in a factory that can be assembled on-site in three days flat.

Over 20 companies joined forces in building this house in Arouca, Portugal, the first ever to be built using the Gomos System. Architect Samuel Gonçalves helmed the design to showcase the simplicity and efficiency of the entire construction process. Porto-based agency Building Pictures captured this process in a short video.

In  2016 book, Reinventing Green Building, Jerry Yudelson identified 10 megatrends that he believes will shape green building technologies, markets, government rules and certification systems through 2020 and beyond. And, by the way, Jerry Yudelson doesn’t think that the election of Donald Trump will in any way disrupt these trends!

Reinventing Green Building, by Jerry Yudelson

Why Certification Systems Aren’t Working and What We Can Do About It.

The book Reinventing Green Building, by Jerry Yudelson, will be available about June 1st. It’s full of detailed statistical analysis of how green building in the US has hit the wall the past few years, commentary from two dozen industry leaders, and detailed recommendations on how to start growing the green building movement once again.

Buildings and their associated systems are the largest source of greenhouse gases in the world. The 2030 Challenge aims to produce zero net -energy from new North American construction by 2030 while achieving a 50% reduction in carbon emissions from existing buildings. With less than 4% of commercial and residential structures in the U.S. and Canada certified by 2015, we seem destined to fall catastrophically short of this target.
