And, what role does the green building movement play in tackling the climate crisis? These are some of the underlying questions for a new series of short documentaries produced by BBC StoryWorks, presented by the World Green Building Council (WGBC): the Building For A Better Future series. By shining light on best practices from across the construction and development sector, the series hopes to increase awareness of how our built environment can profoundly impact the planet and quality of our lives. The mission? To ultimatley change the way we design, build and operate buildings.
Below are three of the Skanska projects that are featured in the series: The Kendeda Building at Georgia Tech University, Brattørkaia Powerhouse in Trondheim, Norway and the Spark office building in Warsaw, Poland.
