It is a future in which buildings provide comfort, are equipped for the most unprecedented events, support people’s health, and are affordable and accessible for all of society.

It also depicts best practices and business solutions from innovative and successful real estate case studies worldwide and outlines recommended actions for both the public and private sectors.
