Stéphanie Barrault, head of the Circular Design Experience project: applying all of the circular-economy principles to the construction sector
In France, the construction sector generates more than 40 million tonnes of waste every year and consumes large quantities of resources to meet the needs of renovation and new construction. A situation that contributes to threatening certain resources with scarcity, or even shortage, in the medium to long term. For example, this is the case with sand, of which the sector is a large consumer.
Nature provides an endless source of inspiration. Observing nature to inspire technological innovation is the very essence of biomimicry.
Improving thermal insulation, reducing the carbon footprint, optimising energy performance… The solution to all these linked objectives lies in the design phase with the choice of materials. A dilemma or a boon?
Simon Brouck, property development project manager at Linkcity Île-de-France, tells us about the Eole Evangile triangle project “IF”, a fertile island in Paris.
UN experts have issued a chilling verdict: in cities and in the countryside, biodiversity is at death's door. The good news, as with climate change, is that it is not too late. Although natural areas remain the priority, urban planners and developers in the broad sense must learn to build, to rebuild cities and buildings that will let ecosystems flourish, where ecological continuity really comes into its own.
By 2050, almost 70% of the world's population will live in cities. But not just any old city, mind you! Cities offering a greener living environment are – and are set to become – increasingly popular. So, let's take a look at the issue of urban planning.
