Description

Consumer pressure and new legislation mean designers and architects are increasingly being asked to use materials from a sustainable source. We talk to one of the world's leading architects who shows us around the UK's first zero carbon housing project and visit the Smile plastics factory where anything from old mobile phones to children's' boots are turned into building materials. The program explores what makes a material sustainable, we talk to a material scientist and examine the characteristics and properties of these materials and then explore the benefits and limitations of using them and ask, what makes a building or product truly sustainable? Includes teacher support material.
