For IKO, urbanisation needs to factor in ecological reality

By 2050, seven out of ten people will be living in cities*. This demographic outlook presents a gigantic challenge involving the obligation to rethink – and even reinvent – the way we “live” tomorrow.

Our way of building also affects the planet: the construction sector accounts for 50% of the natural resources used, and nearly the same percentage of global greenhouse gas emissions.

IKO’s vision involves thinking up new solutions, and using the quintessence of a wealth of outstanding concepts and ideas to propose cities built with methods that preserve our ecosystem, and where nature and the human factor are once more brought to the fore.
