Ross Harding

Ross is a creative sustainability professional with an academic background in engineering and finance. He provides sustainability advice and cost/benefit analysis on architectural projects ranging from houses to city wide masterplans & even entire ski resorts. Architecture firms include internationally recognised firms such as Foster + Partners, Ateliers Jean Nouvel, Adjaye Associates and Grimshaw Architects. Ross has lived and worked as a consultant in Sydney, Melbourne, London, Stockholm, Berlin & Tulum, Mexico. Acknowledging that the barriers to transforming cities to become self-sufficient is as much about technology & finance as it is people, Ross and his team also focus on creative communications, ranging from solar powered events with Vivienne Westwood in London to sustainability road trips & film making with Design Hotels in Germany.
