Traditional wooden building, Whole building life cycle, Carbon emission


The issue of carbon emissions has attracted a great deal of attention in recent years, both at home and abroad. There are also more and more people engaged in related research. In the field of architecture, more people are starting to look at the whole life cycle of buildings to explore energy saving and emission reduction of buildings. It is not just about exploring how to reduce the energy consumption of a building during its use. This paper will analyze the advantages of traditional wooden buildings and modern buildings in terms of low carbon from five perspectives: material selection, transportation, construction, use, transportation and demolition, and summarize the related strategies from a whole life cycle analysis of buildings.
