An estimated 3 billion people will need access to adequate housing by 2030. We must meet this challenge in a way that is sustainable, improves living standards for all and helps communities thrive.
Our researchers are constantly innovating to make sustainable construction possible at scale. With our Houses of Tomorrow project, we are translating their work into real world solutions through housing projects in many different parts of the world, in collaboration with architects and engineers.
One example is the Kanya Kawayan Weaving Center in the Philippines. It is a community center built on a sugar cane farm using sustainable design techniques such as the cement-bamboo frame technology and our low-carbon ECOPlanet cement. It will provide a space for local residents to transform waste from the sugar cane at the local farm into products they can sell, bringing additional income to the community and improving living standards.
Let’s take a virtual tour of the Kanya Kawayan Weaving Center with our colleagues Ryan and Erwin:
