Our choices regarding how buildings are planned, constructed and used have a considerable impact on the carbon levels of our planet, which are currently somewhat worrying. But there’s also good news.

Urban life will begin to hum again to the familiar rhythms of work, leisure and shopping. This will be a huge relief for us all.
