A team of researchers at New York’s Parsons School of Design has authored a nearly 200-page book laying out the case for hemp building materials as a healthy, environmentally sound alternative to conventional construction.
“Faced with a climate change crisis, there is an increasing demand for the construction industry to produce renewable, environmentally sustainable and benign construction materials,” write the authors, researchers from the school’s Healthy Materials Lab (HML), who extol hempcrete for its “valuable physical and natural chemical characteristics . . . which make it a compelling choice in construction.”
