Innovating from Architecture to Reduce the Carbon Footprint (Part I)

The impact of urban development and construction on our carbon footprint and on greenhouse gas emissions requires us to take a fresh look at the practices of the entire sector, and in this regard, architects can play a leading role. Diego del Alcázar Benjumea, Executive Vice President at IE University, talks to architect Michael Green, founder of the innovating firm MGA, about his use of organic carbon-sequestering materials, such as wood and about the need to review building codes.
