Sprawling 50,000 sq.ft in Kowloon Bay, HK’s first zero carbon building was unveiled earlier this summer, with its energy efficient design aiming to re-invigorate the green trend towards sustainable & eco-friendly architecture in our city. It achieves carbon neutrality by generating renewable energy via solar panels and biodiesel made from cooking oil waste. The construction process also focused on minimizing waste and carbon production. Whether this triggers a change in the industry remains to be determined, but the project is, without a doubt, inspiring and worth aspiring to. For more details and photos see:
