Getting Our Houses In Order – Member Lean In Session
11 Aug 2020 at 12:00 pm AEST
In this session, Jeremy McLeod of Breathe Architecture will challenge how we think about sustainability – many of us think sustainable architecture means trying to do everything all at once. In that approach, however, it ends up in the too-hard basket and we look away.
Faced with the climate crisis spiralling out of control before our very eyes, Jeremy recognises that we have had to change our approach. To invite everyone on a journey to net-zero carbon emissions, his team has made it easy. A simple, 3 step journey that you, too, can implement and take on each of the clients and sub consultants, to help them build confidence and understanding around their carbon emissions and how to abate them.
This is about progress, not perfection. It’s about mainstreaming a carbon neutral future.
Jeremy McLeod is the founding Director of Breathe Architecture, a team of dedicated architects that have built a reputation for delivering high quality design and sustainable architecture for all scale projects. Breathe Architecture has been focusing on sustainable urbanisation and particularly have been investigating how to deliver more affordable urban housing to Melbournians.
Breathe were the instigators of The Commons housing project in Brunswick and now are collaborating with other Melbourne Architects to deliver the Nightingale Model. Nightingale is intended to be an open source housing model led by Architects. Jeremy believes that architects, through collaboration, can drive real positive change in this city we call home.
