FERTILE CITIES 2050
Belgian-born, Paris-based lead archibiotect Vincent Callebaut designs and builds with the future in mind. Biomimetic and plus-energy buildings that produce their own power, vertical forests, pollution-removing towers and boats, floating cities and oceanscrapers, and vertical food farms. Discover projects that meet the major urban and ecological challenges of the 21st century !
In 2050, there will be 9 billion human beings on our blue planet and 80 % of the world population will live in megacities. It’s time to take action against climate change, to invent new eco-responsible lifestyles and to incorporate nature into our cities. It’s not a trend. It’s a necessity!
We need to think outside of the box, to shake up the old structures. To make society evolve is the most difficult thing to do in this world ... but it is possible, step by step.
Each of his green projects showcases its green credentials in combining bioclimatic rules such as the solar cycle and prevailing wind directions on the one hand, with renewable energy technologies in the form of wind turbines, thermal and photovoltaic solar energy, rainwater recycling, geothermal energy, biomass and upcycling of biomaterial on the other hand.
With over 50 projects, including several currently under construction, biomimicry specialist Vincent Callebaut is definitely an active proponent of people-oriented and environmentally-friendly architecture that ushers in new eco-lifestyles and new circular economy.
Vincent Callebaut gives hope for a better tomorrow !
