Experts outline pioneering projects and reflect on their own experiences with climate-friendly construction alongside regional problems posed by rising emissions. Subjects include Australian architects Richard Weller and Richard Hassell, plus Shigeru Ban, Anna Heringer, Tatiana Bilbao and many more.Architecture and construction account for more than 40% of global CO2 emissions.
