I accompanied Graham Haughton and his ‘Sustainable Communities’ class on a fieldtrip to see Saltaire, a old industrial town that has been regenerated as a sustainable urban development. There are some interesting tensions here between historic preservation and aims to improve the energy performance of buildings. We also visited the Greenhouse in Leeds, a refurbished building with impressive sustainability credentials.
