Architecture is the single most resource-intensive industry known to man. In the construction of buildings and spaces, as well as in the configuration of lifestyles by said constructions, architecture is responsible for more than 50% of all energy and resource consumption in the modern world. Accordingly, architecture has incredible potential as a catalyst for bringing about a sustainable future.

Futureperfect presents a range of architects and commentators who see the role of architecture in sustainable living as an opportunity to deliver what the essential purpose of architecture has always been: to enable living well, privately and publicly.
