Hey Architect 👋🏼

My name is Steven Biersteker and I’m glad you’re here.

I am an architect, writer, and content creator with a passion for low-carbon design.

I have been writing about the importance of considering carbon in architectural design for over 2 years and continue to do that through The Carbon Architect.

My goal with this newsletter is simple:

1 | To shed light on the carbon impact of buildings.

2| Educate design professionals on how to lower their carbon impact.

3| Help people connect to the right people and solutions.

Who is it for?

The Carbon Architect is for the carbon curious.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve never thought about the topic, or have been working on low-carbon buildings for decades. There is value here for you.

It is for anyone who wants to learn and make architecture a part of the solution, not just less of the problem.

What are you waiting for? 👇🏼


I write to over 14k on LinkedIn about architecture, carbon, design, and everything related. I’d love to have you join along.

Exploring carbon in architecture, one diagram at a time.


Architect by day, carbon curious by night. On a mission to explore and share the concepts, strategies, and tools to reduce carbon in buildings. Of course, I'll make sure to do it with a flare for creativity and design.
