Glue May Soon Hold Towers Together

Forget mortar and bolts, composite materials and adhesives could soon be used to hold entire skyscrapers together, according to American architect Greg Lynn.

Lynn says carbon fibre, fibreglass and other structural plastics could revolutionise highrise construction because they are lighter weight, stronger and more affordable than many of the traditional building materials we see used on highrise buildings at the moment.

According to Lynn, connecting building components together with fast-drying glue is a faster and more efficient method that could soon be replacing the need for screws, rivets and bolts.
