Changing Places - A New Paris Every Five Days

Geoff Riley

11th December 2017

According to a new report, the World adds a new city the size of Paris every 5 days!

The pressure to improve the energy intensity of buildings will grow inexorably and whilst progress is obvious in many countries, it is also uneven. 

According to the report: 

"The floor area of buildings worldwide (235 billion square metres in 2016) will almost double by 2060 with expectations of 230 billion m2 added by then -- roughly the floor area of all of Japan's buildings added to the planet each year, a Paris every five days."
