November '10:Isover are running their global student competition to be a vertical mixed-use multi-comfort tower for a site in New York. As the University of Nottingham have such expertise in Tall Buildings, Isover asked Phil to do a webcast lecture that would help all taking part. This is visible on: www.multicomforthouse.co.uk/student-competition-2011/resources/lectures/
We have nine groups doing towers on the New York site, but we would welcome more schools or more student groups from elsewhere trying this project. It is very challenging, and we have had a month already of site analysis and early design.
