IN THIS ISSUE: DESTINATION ZERO

Sustainability is evolving rapidly, our targets and strategies for achieving them have changed. Why? The urgency of our environmental situation demands immediate action.

Today we’re targeting Net Zero Energy and Net Zero Carbon. To get there we’ll
need to leverage the power of parametric design tools, develop a deeper understanding of what makes a community more sustainable, and under-stand where to focus our efforts for maximum result.

In this issue we explore the forces driving the progression of sustainable design, strategies to achieve it and the importance of delivering on what we promise.
