  • 1.6 billion people are estimated to have inadequate shelter in the world today, and 3.8 million of them in France alone.
  • The construction industry accounts for 30% of global GHG emissions, consumes 40% of the total energy demand and 50% of raw materials.
  • By 2030, 3 billion new inhabitants will have to find accommodation, which represents the equivalent of 96,000 homes per day.


Challenges

  • How can we better conceive and design the man-made buildings of tomorrow?
  • How can we produce housing for the greatest number of people in both the North and the South from an environmentally responsible perspective?
  • How can we better make use of territorial resources to develop a local economy in the architecture and construction industries?
