Our cities are facing many challenges, from mass urbanisation to resource scarcity, progressively volatile climates to dangerous pollution levels.
Buildings now contribute to 36% of our global energy usage and nearly 40% of global final emissions. As we reshape post-pandemic life, worldwide cities must look at the way we manufacture, design, and build and must support the right technologies and planning systems.
From retrofits to urban mobility planning to multi-modal transportation and innovate solutions like the 15-minute city, cities need to re-address the way they plan, build and invest in order to support a growing population in a sustainable way.
