The goal of the Building 2050 Research group is to allow the digital and energy transition of the building sector, while ensuring comfort and architectural quality. The group sets up decision-making tools, methodologies and technical solutions to reach the 2050 intermediate objectives of the 2000-Watt society vision.

The smart living Building

The smart living lab’s future building, that should be ready by 2021, serves as ground material for the research group. It is our main case study, and we follow its development from the early design brief to its operational usage, in order to continue experimenting in real life conditions. It will house the activities of 100’s researchers, who will be able to experiment on the building itself.
