Most Green Buildings — So Far — Aren’t Even Close to Being Carbon-Neutral
FEB. 3, 2022
Behold the building of the future: mossy stones lying strewn around a hill outside the English city of Windsor, carved, shaped, and incised in the fashions of centuries past. These chunks of 18th-century wall and Victorian cornice have lain in the woods for nearly 100 years, remnants of a British country home dismembered, like so many others, so there’d be nothing left to pay taxes on. Now Matthew Barnett Howland, an architect at the Eton-based firm CSK, and the business-communications entrepreneur Andrew Try, the property’s current owner, are hoping to press those relics into service for a new structure.
