How we reduce CO2 emissions in the built environment is changing – with focus moving from energy efficiency to reducing embodied carbon, according to UNSW’s Philip Oldfield.

Rent-based housing models and carbon-neutral skyscrapers are among the projects of almost 100 UNSW Masters of Architecture students on show this week.
