The Green Dream questions what is currently labelled as 'green' and in conjunction with experts elaborates how it ought to be defined. It challenges architectural conventions and looks into the potentials of new green architecture. It recognizes that green buildings alone do not make a green city, but also looks at potential solutions within the cities themselves, how it will change them and where the boundaries lie.

Is a green city actually feasible? The Why Factory concludes that green is ultimately about performance. If you understand the metrics and numbers, then greenery can serve as inspiration. Visionary projects illustrate the green future that contextual, largescale, imaginative and measurable architectural and urban projects might produce for us.
