Designing a building is no easy task. Increasingly, architects have to balance the legacy of traditions with the allure of the new. Designing a building is not simply creating a blueprint and then constructing it. The construction materials and building operations together constitute nearly 40% of greenhouse* gas emissions. The responsibility for ensuring these living spaces are as carbon efficient as possible today falls to architects too. Another recent challenge architects will have to solve is designing spaces that contain the spread of deadly viruses.
