amata + triptyque plan timber building in são paulo that absorbs carbon dioxide

frequently called the capital of steel and concrete, são paulo will house a building completely made of brazilian timber. the project is an initiative by amata, a forest management company, and architecture studio, triptyque. the 13 story building allows for many different functional uses, such as co-working, co-living, and restaurant dining. both communal and private spaces interact with the city where one can live in tune with a new environmental consciousness.

each 1m³ of reforested wood has absorbed one metric ton of atmospheric CO² from the environment, helping meet the proposal signed by brazil during the 21st climate conference (COP 21) in paris, (promising to replant 12 million hectares of forest and reduce by 43% the green-house effect gas emissions until 2030). consequently, triptyque and amata’s project helps solve one of the long lasting problems with the construction industry.

‘wooden framed buildings are an efficient solution and may serve as a boost toward a change in the environmental consciousness of our societies,’ explains dario guarita neto, cofounder and CEO at amata. ‘as we replace non-renewable resources with natural raw materials, we also help create a cleaner chain of production and we add value to certified forests. this can lower the pressure for deforestation.’
