A solution that includes all three construction materials, each one used for its best abilities and resistance. Reinforced concrete for its low tensile strength and stability, structural lightweight steel for the flexibility and height strength-to-weight ratio. And finally beautiful lightweight timber for the wall, floor and ceiling applications, among with the furnishings and

The vegetation regulates the temperature of the soil below, acts as a filter for dust and can act as a protective windbreak or to block out the sun. plants are also different in different areas due to the different climates associated with those areas. This article is valid as it relates directly to microclimates and the effects of certain factors that influence the climate of the area. This article is relevant to the assignment as it directly deals with the factors that influence the microclimate of an
