We share the architects’ challenges on urbanization
By 2050, 70% of the world's population will live in cities, which is twice as many people as in 1970! With the rise in urbanization, city authorities, architects and urban planners must tackle a variety of different issues, including affordable housing, infrastructure, environmentally friendly construction, well-being and aesthetics.
Like architects, we play a major role in cities around the world. As a developer of construction solutions, Lafarge shares a number of their concerns, especially those related to urbanization. We work in close cooperation with architects and engineering offices to move forward on these fundamental issues and develop construction solutions that are best able to meet them. This is the thinking behind our ambition: Building Better Cities.
