Even if every new building were to obtain LEED Platinum certification, it wouldn’t reduce our current carbon emissions. In truth, we need to focus on making all buildings net zero energy, net zero water and net zero carbon, including our existing ones. Join a discussion about learning the lessons of nature and science fiction and overcoming fear to build in a radically new way.
