We must help foster awareness in future generations. They will be stuck with cleaning up after us— Mariusz Gontarz, architect

Mariusz says: “Architects should make kids aware of the world we live in, a world created by adults, some of them architects. To clean up the mess we’ve made (up to 49% of the waste stream comes from the building trade according to Metropolis magazine), we must help foster awareness in future generations. They will be stuck with cleaning up after us.”
