New building materials are being developed because if we do
not save current building materials, in the future they will be scarce.
Materials like Syndecrete, a material developed by David Hertz at Syndesis,
Inc., might help reduce the use of limited and/or non-recyclable materials.
Syndecrete is a solid lightweight concrete surfacing material that is an
alternative to inadequate or nonrenewable natural supplies. Syndecrete is made
of materials that are environmentally friendly and taken from waste streams.
Personally, I think that Syndecrete would be a good material and should be used
for future homes because in the future many supplies that are important in
building structures and buildings may be limited if we do not use them
sparingly. This material is made of recycled resources that are conservational.
Another interesting material that has been used in the building of a house is
seagull bone marrow. Already, the Tsui futuristic home’s third floor is
designed with trusses made of sea gull bone marrow. For more about environmentally friendly
