Half a century of sleepwalking towards climate change


Well done the AJ for publishing this! Such an important subject that is so frequently overlooked. And written by THE expert on the subject. It is a matter of great regret that the architectural professional on the whole has done so little to promote POE seriously. Collectively surely, we can be stronger? Greta Thunberg would encourage us to be just a little bolder? My practise does now offer POE on all projects that we take on, and end doing something on most. It does take a little time but less than one might imagine. This is very much the start of a journey but the lessons so far have caused us to change our process and approach. This I believe is leading us to be better designers, delivering better outcomes. Ultimately that is good business sense too. Waiting for beyond 2020 for what Bordass calls for would be genuinely tragic. Those of us now in middle age will live to regret it deeply if we don’t get behind his call to action.
