Construction is still one of the least efficient and digitized industries worldwide. Nevertheless, in the last decade, there has been a considerable push from some of the industry leaders for better practices that are kinder to our planet
Islands are among the most vulnerable places to climate change. Especially given that islands contribute to a fraction of the global greenhouse gas emissions, the climate change risks they're facing are disproportional.
Even though cities cover only 3 percent of the earth's surface, they host more than half of its population and produce about three-quarters of global carbon emissions. Here are 5 cities implementing Unique Climate Solutions.
Taking a more serious and structured approach to downsizing, "micro-living" is now a dominant design and real estate trend. Officially, this term refers to homes that are up to 35 square meters in size.
A sustainable hospital is also known as a “green hospital”. The concept grew considerably in the last decades in healthcare to counter the conundrum of public health vs. the environment.

Over the last ten years, intelligent buildings have emerged as a crucial component of the design process. Connected and automated solutions have provided operators with greater comfort, energy efficiency, and cost savings. But the COVID-19 pandemic brought another challenge to the frontlines of the building design projects: Hygiene.
