Whilst struggling with the COVID pandemic we must not forget the world is also facing twin challenges of climate change and biodiversity loss. The impact of these interlinked crises will vary across different parts of the world, but will affect the way in which we develop our built environment.

Founding Partner, Peter Clegg, explains in the short introductory films below why sustainability and climate responsive design has driven the direction of the practice and our work, and must remain a focus on a global scale in order to respond to the climate crisis.  

Why Climate Responsive Design

Whilst struggling with the COVID pandemic we must not forget the world is also facing twin challenges of climate change and biodiversity loss. The impact of these interlinked crises will vary across different parts of the world, but will affect the way in which we develop our built environment. 

Over 40 years of experience and combined skills underpin the Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios' approach to low carbon design and our support of clients who are demanding responses in the face of potentially catastrophic climate change and biodiversity loss.

The need to address climate change lies primarily with the industrialised countries of the world, but most of The Global South will have to adopt policies of both adaptation and mitigation as they undergo a process of rapid urbanisation and economic growth. Through implementing
sustainable policy and investing in renewable energy systems and resilient buildings, there is the opportunity for The Global South to leapfrog industrialised nations, avoiding the process of decarbonisation, and fasttrack to a greener and more prosperous future.
