Five sustainable architecture practices working on a grand scale
The online edition of the bosses' favourite newspaper, the Wall Street Journal, does its bit for sustainable architecture with short profiles of the architects who add 'sex appeal' to sustainable buildings.
The five architects chosen include Norman Foster, who is working on developing
a car-free, zero carbon city in the United Arab Emirates, Juergen Mayer H., who has a punctuation mark in his name and is therefore unassailably cool (or something), Stefan Behnisch, Ian Ritchie and Dutch outfit MVRDV, noted for its work on a new 3,000-unit 'eco-city' in Spain, which will produce all its own energy with wind, solar and on-sire production of biomass.
