A summer of existing buildings
We cannot meet our future goals without utilizing our greatest built and cultural assets: existing buildings. With urgent aims to become carbon-free by 2050—and with 85 percent of floorspace that Boston will need in 2050 already built—we must recognize and leverage existing buildings for what they are: banks of embodied carbon and material resources, and compelling design challenges. Join the existing buildings movement this summer. With collaboration, collective action, and urgency, implementable and effective existing buildings solutions will move us forward.
