A new high rise building in Sydney brought a rush of archispeak and self-congratulation.
What I wrote about it and how I saw it suggested designers, developers and councils mostly ignore the pollution caused by their projects. These practices and choices put Earth last.
The article ruffled some feathers but resonated with others.
Shouldn’t we always talk about water, recycled water and clean energy these days, no matter the project?
It’s not the personalities which matter, it’s what buildings do to Earth - her air, oceans, water and life forms. Let’s focus on facts and beauty as do trees?
How many floods, droughts, freezing cities do we need before we accept we’ve run out of choices about whether to put Earth and fixing her climate first in all our choices?
This is what I wrote.
What do you think?
