To support climate friendly urban development the municipalities in the western part of the Oslo region – Oslo, Bærum, Asker and Drammen – have launched FutureBuilt. FutureBuilt is a ten-year program (2010-2020) with an aim to develop 50 pilot projects including buildings and city areas.

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 urban environment.

FutureBuilt’s vision is to show that climate neutral urban areas, based on high quality architecture, are possible. Its pilot projects have a high degree on transferability and innovation and an important aim is to inspire and change practices in the building sector.
