The building of shelter consumes one-sixth of the world’s fresh water supply, one-fourth of its wood harvest, two-fifths of its fossil fuels and manufactured materials, and one-half of its waste stream. A new attitude to construction is not only possible but also completely necessary for continued urban and rural survival.
