I can really say that I was shocked reading this quote by William McDonough a concerned architect and a sustainability expert, with strong eco friendly believes.
“Architects are creating killing machines by not considering the toxicity of the materials used in buildings” William McDonough said expressing the thoughts of many of us.
Over-focusing on carbon neutrality or reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions is skewing the sustainable agenda. And while there’s so much focus on carbon, architects are still using toxic materials and effectively delivering a killing machine.
Now more than ever we need to focus on materials as much as we do on energy and although this is not an easy task, toxicity should be an integral part of any governmental initiatives and protocols.
