How to do better with less?
The State of Vaud has just published issue 14 of the "Jalons" collection. This publication explores – from a building perspective – the issues related to the need to drastically reduce environmental impacts and the sparse use of available resources. On this occasion, Prof. Emmanuel Rey was invited to present some considerations related to the issues and strategies of intervention for buildings. Several research projects of the Laboratory of Architecture and Sustainable Technologies (LAST) are also among the concrete avenues presented in the publication.
Since 2005, the GCO has been rewarding Bachelor's, Master's and semester projects that deal in an exemplary manner with the management and conservation of existing structures. In addition to a well-informed reflection on the existing situation, the work must clearly present the resulting solution proposals.
In search of pioneering constructions in the Alps

The jury is inviting architects and building owners to submit projects between 2017 and 2021 that contribute to the implementation of the "net zero" climate objective within the scope of the Alpine Convention.
