Sam Bowstead has 9 years of experience in architectural practice, advocacy and research focusing on climate adaptation, resilience and building sustainable cities in Australia and the United States.
Presently 40% percent of global emissions come from the building sector and climate change is driving the need for increased resilience and adaptation in our communities. Sam believes that architects have a responsibility to act, not only in their built work but also through advocacy. Sam’s passion lies between the two.
He co-led the New York and San Francisco Climate Braintrusts at the World Economic Forum empowering 20 climate entrepreneurs with expertise from 101 advisors, building on his previous advocacy work with James Davidson Architect.
