What is the sustainable house of the future?


There is a general agreement that our built world should become climate neutral. But, how construction will have to change to make this future a reality is still uncertain. At the same time, the economic and social framework for construction and especially for housing construction are changing. Components, building products, and building systems are being reused, and this is accompanied by a new ethic of design and construction and a new aesthetic of architecture.

We ask ourselves, what are the new parameters and models for the creation of housing for future generations in an urban context and in all other scales? How buildings can help resolve global climate and health challenges through sustainable solutions and practical action, that promote low carbon footprint, liveability and societal cohesion? What are the investment models that allow sustainable, people centric development of new and existing buildings? What is the sustainable house of the future?
