future built


To support climate friendly urban development the municipalities in the western part of the Oslo region – Oslo, Bærum, Asker and Drammen – have launchedFutureBuilt.

FutureBuilt is a ten-year programme with an aim of developing 50 pilot projects including individual buildings and city areas. FutureBuilt will run until 2020, and the pilot projects will be carried out throughout this period.

The pilot projects are set to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from transport, energy and material consumption by at least 50 per cent. They will involve high quality architecture and contribute to a better environment for urban dwellers.

By April 2015 FutureBuilt includes 37 pilot projects dealing with:

  • Urban areas
  • Schools
  • Kindergartens
  • Office buildings
  • Cultural centres
  • Housing projects
  • Ice skating rink
  • Cycling projects
