Find out more Organic Building Materials — The Green Temple The amount of energy used and pollution created from man-made construction materials is astounding. The number and amount of harmful chemicals used is growing all the time, leading to many people becoming allergic or getting sick around new carpets and a wide variety of other materials. Organic materials such as wood, straw, bamboo, cellulose insulation, clay, natural paints and oils or waxes could be used instead to create low energy buildings that are solid, safe and better for the environment. Organic materials are grown from seeds and absorb carbon dioxide while they grow. After harvesting, they sequester this greenhouse gas and do not release it into the atmosphere. Organic building materials can breath, absorbing and giving off moisture for a healthy indoor environment. Just like we now associate organic foods with healthier eating, organic construction materials lead to a healthier building.

Competition: five Arckit 180 modelling sets to be won Dezeen has teamed up with Arckit to give away five modelling kits from its new series. Arckit was hailed as "posh Lego" when it was first launched by architect Damien Murtagh over two years ago, as it is made up modular components that connect without glue. It aimed to provide architects with an alternative to the traditional cut and glue architectural working models, but the collection has since expanded to include kits suitable for a wider audience. "Arckit has been a success not just in the architecture sector but also within education," said Murtagh. "We have launched the new kits to meet this demand and build on the original range, so users can now use Arckit to design a wider range of models than ever before." "It's an extremely innovative and practical tool for students and professionals, but also amazing fun for anyone who is creative and enjoys design and modelmaking," he continued. Animation of Arckit Arckit is available to purchase online and in selected stores worldwide.
