Discover how players in Infrastructure & Cities can join forces all along the value chain and act now for a more sustainable future.

The future of Infrastructure & Cities starts today

Inspired by Gustave Eiffel’s famous tower and by our dedication to harmonize products, nature and life, Dassault Systèmes gathered a global team of experts to demonstrate that environmental challenges can be efficiently addressed by the Infrastructure & Cities sector.

Infrastructure & Cities should be built to last for decades, or for centuries.

In the context of climate change, resource depletion, and the rapid growth of cities, it is more important than ever to incorporate sustainable development measures into everything we do. Only then, can we ensure that we meet the needs of the present without placing undue burdens on the future.

Today we have the capability to put those considerations into action, and to embed sustainability in our Infrastructures & Cities, at every stage of the value chain. All of this can be enabled by the collaborative solutions of the Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE® platform.

The time to act is now, and visionary builders have a clear agenda:

  • Build for citizens, with citizens
  • Design for climate adaptation
  • Decarbonize whole industry value chains, from materials to production
  • Build the foundations for a circular economy
  • Design energy-positive building operations

In 1887, a team led by Gustave Eiffel won a challenge to build, in less than two years, a 300-meter high tower in Paris. The Eiffel Tower was a symbol of scientific and technical progress and became one of the world’s most iconic landmarks. 

But how would visionary public authorities, engineers, architects, logistics experts, and builders approach these challenges today, using the tools and technologies of the 21st century? That’s what we set out to explore with the “Building Tomorrow” project – an attempt to reimagine monumental architecture for a more sustainable world.

In designing this new tower, we demonstrate how better ways of thinking and working can enable more circular practices at the entire sector level, and show the way forward towards a more sustainable tomorrow.
