Frances Halsband FAIA offers her vision of sustainable buildings for the future

As initiatives to fight climate change grow stronger, new sustainable materials are becoming more common and available. Getting rid of glass is only one of the solutions.

Produced by Antonella Crescimbeni for Cheddar, this video explores the many drawbacks that glass skyscrapers present to our natural environment.

Experts Mark Chambers, Director of Sustainability at Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Office, and Justin Davidson, Architecture Critic at New York Magazine, also joined to discuss the matter.

Frances comments,”I wouldn’t say we are in love with skyscrapers I would say that there is an understanding right now amongst everybody that skyscrapers are not doing us any good. So it’s a moment to say alright, what comes next?”
