To make buildings better, we need to put the users and the community around the building first. We need to design clever buildings that provide healthy environment for our users through sustainable material and technology choices. We need to stop aiming for ‘zero carbon’ buildings as the best practice, it is too late the damage is done. We need to aim for regenerative buildings which go over and above to give something back to the ecology or society. We need to stop thinking about buildings in isolation and start applying joined up thinking, not every building needs to collect and reuse rainwater. However one with a particularly large roof could capture for itself and surrounding buildings. We need to work together, all professions, governments and trades because at the end of the day, we all share the same planet and the decisions we make locally can act globally.
