Climate change is the most horrific threat our species has ever known: No matter how powerful you are or how much money you have, our transforming planet is a reckoning for every one of us. But there are degrees to this misery. If you’re perched in a Manhattan penthouse, the effects might not be immediately apparent (because you don’t care or aren’t paying attention, or both). If you’re a subsistence farmer in Kenya, the situation is already much more dire.

1899 Coca-Cola started life as a soda-fountain drink selling for five cents a glass, and the brand’s early management had little or no intention to bottle its product. The beverage was first bottled by Mississippi shop owner Joseph Biedenharn in the mid-1880s, but Coca-Cola president Asa Griggs Candler remained unimpressed. It was only in 1899 that Candler sold the bottling rights to three Tennessee businessmen – Benjamin Thomas, Joseph Whitehead and John Lupton – for the princely sum of $1. The first glass vessels were straight-sided Hutchinson bottles, using a metal stopper first patented by Charles Hutchinson in 1879.

Wrapped in bamboo surfaces and punctuated by living plants, facilities management company Mitie’s headquarters in London was created by local practice DaeWha Kang Design. The biophilic project — dubbed the Living Lab at The Shard — mimics nature from its natural materials palette to the circadian lighting system linked to an astronomical clock.
