The latest edition of our Dezeen Weekly newsletter features our interview with UN climate champion Nigel Topping, who said architecture is one of the slowest sectors to sign up for its Race to Zero decarbonisation scheme.
In the interview Nigel Topping, the UN's champion for the COP26 climate conference, said architecture was "one of the least well-represented businesses" in the UN's net-zero push.
According to Topping none of the world's 50 largest firms have signed up to its Race to Zero campaign. This is despite the fact that the built environment contributes around 40 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions.
Other stories in this week's newsletter include Foster+ Partners' conversion of a 1920s movie theatre into an Apple Store, a pair of Helen & Hard-designed treehouses, and an exhibition that captures bricked-up windows of homes throughout London.
