An interesting extract from a Dezeen's hosted video chatting with Mary Parsons, the commissioner behind the Building Better, Building Beautiful report in the UK. It's a good insight into urban planning initiatives in the UK and highlights some of the lessons we all need to learn about poor planning on our housing developments. A good video for all architects and developers.
What makes a city sustainable? We take a look at the world’s most sustainable cities to find out…
We take a look at the top ten sustainable, off-grid homes from around the world, assessing the design and build of each structure, and learning how we can all be more resourceful, and reduce our impact on the planet.
We visited Elmsbrook, the UK's first eco town, with highly sustainable, passivhaus standard buildings and homes. This is a pioneering development with 400 highly energy efficient homes, creating one of the UK's first truly zero carbon communities.
The talk will investigate the EU's New European Bauhaus initiative and the UK's Building Better, Building Beautiful housing commission, plus a new report on place-making by UNStudio.
What Is Biodiversity? and why is it so important? In this video we head to the Eden Project in Cornwall UK to learn more about biodiversity and find out ways you can help the natural world.
Trials and tribulations of building a bushcraft waterwheel deep in the woods.
The BedZED eco village is a sustainable housing development based in London, UK. We went to the eco village to see both the green building design and the sustainable community.
In this video we visit some of the best examples of living green walls and look at how they benefit us and the planet. These plant walls are becoming increasingly popular in our cities and I expect that all sustainable architecture of the future will have green walls and vertical gardens fully integrated.
