Climate change, natural disasters, the rising price of raw materials: Our earth is changing, and that means we have to change the way we live.
The goal is securing progress and prosperity without hurting the planet. As a result, sustainability has become a key concept in the 21st century, particularly when it comes to designing buildings and cities. Today, more than half of the world's population lives in urban centers.
Architects and engineers from around the world are up to the challenge. They are building environmentally-sustainable football stadiums in Brazil, satellite cities in China and clay schools in Burkina Faso. In the six parts of the documentary series ECOPIA, we show you their visionary projects.
