Architects Declare – but are they prepared to deliver?


There's still a lot of lazily claiming concrete has high embodied energy here (inaccurately). I applaud Zaha for actually designing facades with openings in walls. It is fully glazed, laminated curtain walling systems that have huge embodied energy, cant be recycled and are full or rare and toxic materials. The big problem with Zaha's designs is her enormous ego and the resulting complete lack of flexibility or even usability of some buildings
