Lifecycle Assessment at the heart of Building Tomorrow

Click the video below to see Xavier Adam, Sustainability Industry Solution Experience Senior Manager, explain what the Lifecycle Assessment is and how it helps to go further than only measuring the project carbon impact of a project

The construction industry has been focusing on measuring the impact during the youth phase of the building but not during the upstream extraction of the raw materials, process of manufacturing materials, and all the construction process. The Life Cycle Assessment Solution is revolutionary because now we can do this overall assessment with the virtual twin.

Architect of tomorrow

Nicolas Laisné founded his agency Nicolas Laisné Architectes in 2005. He develops urban planning, architecture and interior design projects, from design to execution and site supervision.

With his team of more than 20 people based in Paris, he works for public authorities, private actors and individuals, in France and abroad.

Nicolas Laisné was trained in several cultures : India with Raj Rewal, the United States with Steven Holl, and Europe with Jean Nouvel. For the Arbre Blanc, one of his most emblematic creations (2019), he has immersed himself in Japanese and Mediterranean cultures. Nicolas Laisné has a concern for nature and a way of softening the boundary between interior and exterior, through the effects of thresholds and gentle porosity.With his open-mindedness, natural curiosity and taste for dialogue, Nicolas Laisné multiplies influences and limits the weight of dogmas. His decompartmentalized vision of architecture leads him to invite philosophers, ergonomists, botanists, artists and data scientists to his table. He forms a new transdisciplinary team for each project.

His latest projects (L'Arbre Blanc, L'Arboretum in Nanterre, L'Atelier de l'Arsenal in Paris, the Althéa and Tilia housing projects in Vélizy, Nice Méridia, etc.) reflect his desire to open up architecture. So that it gives more space to everyone, including nature, in ever denser cities. So that it integrates the new uses of society, and their accelerated evolution. So that it makes the sharing of space a happy experience of conviviality
