Green Building Council Australia (GBCA) member organisation Woods Bagot has released a new publication – Public #5: A Human Thing. Published in 2009, it is a commentary on social, ecological and economic sustainability.
For the first time in human history more than half of the world’s population lives in cities. As the globe experiences rapid climate change and issues of energy and resources conservation are paramount, the design industry faces an urgent challenge on how better buildings and cities can significantly reduce our impact on the environment. By entering the debate, Public#5 acknowledges that a problem on this scale has no single solution: policy, technology and behavioural change all have important roles to play in an arena that traverses the individual, product, industry, city, country, affecting the entire globe.
