local.seafdecaqd.extractClimate change is taking its toll on our country. Rainy seasons have become unpredictable, bringing severe flooding and other dire conditions that scientists predict will become more frequent as the planet continues to become warmer. In response to environmental threats, Filipino architect and green architecture advocate Albert Zambrano encourage architects to do their roles in limiting the effects of climate change in the communities. He said that architects are in a position to take a lead role in climate action by promoting green designs. “It has been estimated that 40 percent of all fossil fuels consumed is attributed to the construction and operation of buildings. If architects design buildings that are energy efficient, then the carbon dioxide emission, which is one of the leading causes of climate change, can be significantly reduced,” he said.en
